Classroom Art Inspiration... The Best Resource

Hi All!  I just wanted to write a quick post about one of my favorite places to go for art inspiration:  Blick Art Supplies online!  If you have never visited their website and clicked on "for educators" you are missing out.

They have collected pages and pages of art lessons for educators.  The lessons are not only in printable pdf format, but they many of them also have video tutorials included.  Such a bonus!  Here in an example from the website:
The lessons are organized by grade level and there are many multi-cultural projects included.

A couple of years ago, for our school auction art project, my class used the above lesson to create "hand sculptures"

Each student designed and created their own hand sculpture using tissue paper pulp.  

I took the hands and arranged them into circles for this sculpture:

The piece was very popular at the auction!  I think it was because each individual child was represented by their hand.  

I am a firm believer in art integration and art education and the Blick website  is a great resource for educators and no, they are not paying me to say this.  I just wanted to share some are inspiration with you.
