Re: Program for high school students to teach art to upper elementary
- Great Idea!
Teachers might appreciate a curriculum tie in too.

art teacher. (I was it. When the HS teacher retired I moved up and they discontinued the
elementary program.) I would like too start a program where 2-3 high school students
(advanced art) go over and spend a day at the elementary teaching art to 4th, 5th and 6th
graders. I choose the upper grades, because the primary teachers do a really good job of
incorporating art into their lessons and the upper grades just don't do as much.

art history lesson (introduce an artist) and then do a related project. They would have to
research the artist, prepare the lesson, plan the project, etc. I think our elementary
teachers would be open to this, but I woould check with them first..
