Christian Tools of Affirmation – Free Resources to enhance any event:
I found the following on a website:
Free lessons nicely organized by method. Inspite of what the name of this site might make you think… is art for K through 8. Shows age for which lesson is appropriate.
· http://www.crayola.com/educators Required to “join” this site, but it’s free. Art projects by product (for example- water color pencils) includes description of techniques. DO check out the CrayolaDreammakers page. (Once there click on “Previous Guides” to download free PDF files of “older”, but just as useful guides full of art ideas.) Great pictures!
Yes they are selling products but hey, you’re looking for ideas remember. You learn about new products this way. Example: I’m still trying to think of a story where I can use heat set watercolor. Looks like a neat product!
A good site for learning the how-to of using a product. Example: you’ve got someone leading the Art workshop that doesn’t know much about watercolor pencils.
I have to admit that I use this one mostly for preschool ideas and for little filler projects – like a “craft” to round out a storytelling workshop. (“Crafts” can be handy now and then.) Not really much “art” at this site. If you join their “resource room” for small annual fee, you get more options.
Have to subscribe to this site ($20/year) to see entire lesson plan, but they do show list of materials and often that’s enough to spark an idea for a project.
You might wonder why I include these next few on a list of ART websites. These next few are more crafts than what I’d call art but there they have some merits as noted:
This one is on the border between art and craft. Sometimes their use of a material will strike you as something to adapt to a different project. (Happened to me with a plastic milk carton idea).
Is also a source of links to other web sites.
Also has a searchable archive of ideas. (But not the greatest search engine.)
Good source of ideas if your Art project is to create items that can then be used in a Drama workshop on the same story.
Crafts organized by type of material. Example – can see tissue paper crafts. Helpful is you’re trying to clean your closets.
This is the site where I found the OLD TESTAMENT PROPHETS lessons:
