I use this lesson for young Kindergarten students as an introduction to some of the basic techniques and processes that they will use in art throughout the year such as use of lines and shapes, drawing, painting, and collage. Not only are students getting an introduction to art room procedures and processes, they will come away with a beautiful product to celebrate their creativity.
This document gives detailed instructions on how to lead your students through the process successfully with photos of each step, tips on preparation, a script for demonstration time, and a guide for a successful work time.
Every lesson on the Painterly Path has been road tested in the classroom and provides tips on how to avoid likely pitfalls.
This lesson is intended for both art teachers and classroom teachers.
