Re: How to teach art to kids under 8

Re art for children of all ages. go to the local high school whre there are classes in carpentry and collect all the bits and pieces of wood left over that they all throw out along with coloured stones buttons stones and empty the boxes in the middle of the classroom and let the students create masks/ eyes, ears, mouths, teeth, noses, hair necks even bodies. you the teacher only will use a hot glue gun to attach the pieces as the students line up in front of you to glue up their masterpieces. If time permits use tempera paints to paint up the masks. adults love this too.... Krysia
