A La Carte: ART


I have been teaching art to the students at my children’s school going on four years (with a small maternity break somewhere in there). Sometimes ideas for this class come quickly, with ease. Other times, I’m pushing it to the limit to come up with a project that is educational, fun, and simple to prepare. So, I thought I’d share a few links to show you where I get most of my ideas. Yeah, I know I’m a copycat…..but, in this case, I’ve got no shame in that!

Art Projects for Kids
Art teacher, Kathy, from California, shares many ideas and pictures of various art projects she’s completed with her students. I love this site so much that most of my lessons from last year came from Kathy’s brain.

Oodles of Art
