Hi I am a new member and I was wondering if anyone could suggest where I might locate lesson plans appropriate for adult students- beginner to intermediate levels.
Thanks in advance,

Umm, how about this whole site? :-) You might need to clarify what type of lesson plans you are looking for. Moving this to the Teacher's Toolbox forum (as this forum will be closed soon).

Cheers.

Hi Jill,
Two of my favorite books for sparking ideas are:

Art Synectics andDesign Synectics both by Nicholas Roukes

These books do not teach technique but really help with project ideas!

Thank you sue ellen! I appreciate your help.
Got any suggestions for a great watercolor technique book? . I have been invited to teach a class that will include this and it is not my forte. Thanks again,

Great! That is one I read about and purchased! I also dug out my old copy of Art Synectics and I am feeling more prepared already!
Thanks again for your help.
I also took a look at Harrison's Acrylic School which seemed pretty good too.

Many books in the "art instruction" section of a good bookstore like Border's or Barnes & Noble are actually organized with lessons. Find the subject matter or media for which you need lessons and look through those books. Both those bookstores available online: Border's/Amazon.com discounts many books 20-30% and you pay for shipping under $100 orders; B&N gives you free shipping when you buy two books. But you really should look through the books yourself.

My favorite book for learning art has always been "drawing on the right side of the brian". Its mostly about drawing in pencil but thats not the point of it, the point is learning how to "see" a picture or subject so that you can draw, paint or whatever it "right".

It also has some interesting lessons in it. I don't think it has any specific age group that it is for, its all around good.

My favorite 2 watercolor teachers are Betty Denton and Susan Scheewe Brown.

Betty sells her workbooks on the internet at www.bettydenton.com. I have painted from her books for over a dozen years. They truly are for any level student.

Susan also sells her workbooks on the internet. Her website is
http://www.grignonsart.com/Art_SuppliesPgs/SchweeBkPgs/SusanScheeweBooksHOME.htm. The books of hers that I have used the most are Paintbox Full Of Greetings, Introduction To Watercolor, Watercolor & Acrylic Workshop, Watercolors Anyone Can Paint.

Happy Painting!
