I love teaching art to children. My philosophy is quite simple: To engage, inspire and teach art with age-appropriate techniques and subjects.
1. Ban pencils and erasers.
Sounds harsh, right? I rarely use pencils and erasers in my classrooms with the exception of a few lessons for upper grades. The reason is purely practical: small pencil leads encourage small drawings.
2. Mix paint onto paper, and not in paint palettes.
Give a child paint and an individual palette and they can spend hours mixing paints to find the perfect color.
3. The ten-minute quiet time
After instructions are given, the paper handed out and the children are engaged in their project, begin a ten-minute quiet time. This is their time; the chance to reflect on their work, the opportunity to lose themselves in their art.
4. Learn how to draw well and make mistakes.
5. Pick fun subjects
You probably know this by now, but I think its imperative that you chose the subject of your art lessons carefully. I want my students charging into the art room anticipating a fun lesson and bearing a can-do attitude
