What’s in your toolkit?

Kentucky Educational Television has a wonderful resource called Arts Toolkit that provides lesson plans, a Virtual Art Gallery on CD-ROM, and eight hours of video segments offering instruction and other helpful resources for teachers. While you may not have access to all of these resources, you can access their fabulous Art Lessons online.

The lessons provide alternate resources if you do not have their toolkit and give step-by-step instructions for how to introduce each art piece and guide students in responding to the art. As students work together to explore and create, they build classroom community and expand/strengthen their vocabularies as they share and critique (constructively, of course).
