The above slide show are samples done by Bobbi Roberts McKinnon and are examples of lesson plans for Art Education k-12.​

 

Teaching your students about art is a good idea—here's why:

  • It's been proven that early exposure to visual art, music, or drama promotes activity in the brain.

     

  • Art helps children understand other subjects much more clearly—from math and science, to language arts and geography.

     

  • Art nurtures inventiveness as it engages children in a process that aids in the development of self-esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, and self-motivation.

     

  • Participating in art activities helps children to gain the tools necessary for understanding human experience, adapting to and respecting others' ways of working and thinking, developing creative problem-solving skills, and communicating thoughts and ideas in a variety of ways.
