Dick Blick Art Lessons




The Dick Blick website has come out with a new list of art lesson plans for 2008. You can take a look here. The picture above is from the Drawing with Yarn lesson. The Paper Sampler below is a fun way to introduce kids to original needlepoint samplers.


The last image is from the Masterpiece Magnetic Puzzle lesson plan and is a great way to use your favorite artwork.

**During my student teaching I was discussing the above artwork, Grant Wood's American Gothic, I asked my 1st graders what their first impression was and one little girl said,

"Well, that guy and that girl look like their about to join an angry mob!"

More wonderful ideas! Wouldn't it be nice to have an art project ready for my son when he gets home from school? What a nice way to unwind rather than television. Thanks for the inspiration!
