1 Review
Teachers - even those with no formal art training - can bring the inspiration of art into the classroom with this resource! Following basic principles and elements of design (composition, line, texture, color, and so forth), the book provides step-by-step directions for more than 120 classroom-tested art projects. Students will enjoy such activities as creating African masks, op art weavings, and Celtic initials, while learning about art history and other subjects. The projects are easily integrated into a variety of curriculum areas, including math, social studies, and language arts. Many are multiculturally based and most use standard classroom art materials.
Grades K-6.

instructions are very poor; extremely unclear; the pictures SHOULD have STEPS and more illustrations ... is puzzling -- can't figure out ... as if written by someone whose native language is NOT english ... do NOT get for elementary or even h.s. kids art projects -- i would NOT buy it at all! there are many OTHER books with art projects for kids ... don't waste ur money.
