      > Hello,
      > I recently took a part time position with a school system that has a once a month family art night. I will help the director organize the monthly event. The purpose is to show parents that art education is important and that it does tie in with other academics. I attended the January event and it is very well organized. The families are assigned to classrooms and a teacher presents a short lesson and then the family does an activity together. Afterwards, they go to the cafeteria for a free pizza dinner. Everything that has to do with the event is paid for by a grant. Would anyone have suggestions on some topics or lessons that would work well. Thirty minutes is alloted for the lesson and activity, not a long time. The parents are allowed to take home the art materials. This school is in a low socioeconomic area.
      > The suggested topic for February was the Chinese New Year which would tie in with social studies. Any suggestions for a short lesson? We also list the state standards to go with each lesson.
      > Thank you for any and all suggestions!

      Cindy -

      We just celebrated an art night that might give you some ideas. Each of the stations was set up for families to be able to create art together with a fairly low level of instruction. If, after looking at my blog post about the event,

      just send an email. Since my program is based on TAB pedagogy, I have lots of pieces available related to curriculum and standards. You'll find some of those in my articles section:
