Everyday Art for the Classroom Teacher

With tight budgets for art in schools, "Everyday Art for the Classroom Teacher" gives educators an exciting opportunity to open the minds nad hearts of students to art. Most materials needed for projects spill over into other areas, such as math and writing, and are excellent for encouraging these skills. Some projects are structured, and others are open-ended, giving you the flexibility to combine and create whatever's best for your classroom situation.
this book, chock-full of great project choices, is a surefire way to have a fun and rewarding time teaching the beauty of art.

Projects include tesselations, celebrations of artists' birthdays, symmetry, op art, cubism, multicultural celebrations, perspective, complementary colors, and more.
