View Full Version : New teacher, need help
I am teaching Home Ec. at our high school and I am responsible for teaching the art class as well. The only art that I know is watercolor and we do not have supplies or money for that. I would like for the kids to do a project about Sept. 11th this week and need some ideas. I have the following supplies:
tempera paint, construction paper, drawing paper, charcoal, chalk pastels, some markers and crayons. That's about it.
Any ideas? Most of them have never had any art.

Hi Kari ... so sorry you haven't had a reply yet.
This question comes up quite regularly. Why not try a search in this forum from the main forum page (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=29). Not sure if it will help but it's worth a try while you are waiting ;)
I think I am going to have them make posters and create 5 line poems to decorate. We can put them up in the halls. Later this week we will be starting perspective and I found some great information on this site.

What I have found about kids is if you give them supplies they will do something with them.....and if you can give them a topic like landscapes, building etc etc....it can get them going.

I am a teacher and here is what you can do with the supplies you listed (with little money)
When september 11 came for me, I was teaching four year olds as the announcement came over the air. This is a good time to teach children about getting along with people of different races and cultures.
How old are the children. It sounds like Middle School. Anyway, you can have the children make flags and have them right about how they can make America a better place after September 11. Have them make flags of different countrties. Have other questions let me know
