Top Ten Teaching Ideas for Celebrating Art Show Week
2. Turn your living room into a museum with art created by your children.
3. Research an artist, dress up as him/her, and make a presentation where the artist talks about his/her life and work.
4. Create art in the style of your favorite artist, and organize an at home art show around different artists.
5. Use pages from old art calendars or art books to create your own themed art show in the living room. Make displays of different themed art either by subject, time period, region, or artist.
6. For younger children, read a picture book and create art or a craft based on the story.
8. Make messy art outdoors or use natural materials (berries, leaves, sticks, mud) as your media.
9. Set up independent learning centers for different artists or have your children do it for each other.
10. Create lots and lots of art! See the videos below for a tutorial.
