Classroom art is an innovative, full-colour, teacher resource series comprising art activities to inspire students to communicate through visual arts and to aid their development as young artists.
The activities are divided into three main sections to develop skills in the areas of drawing, painting and printmaking.
extensive teachers notes suggest activities to develop art awareness, to encourage creativity, show examples of modelling, develop and encourage practice and appraise art. Other notes offer suggestions for classroom organisation, safety precautions, parental involvement, assessment ideas, display ideas and ways to inspire young artists.
