Students love using their creativity and making amazing art projects. Sadly, they often receive only a short amount of time in art class each week. Since teachers know how important incorporating art in school is, they find creative ways around this. For instance, they bring in units that study art around the world. This includes applying their reading and writing skills to learn about artists and artistic trends. Then, they have students make their own art projects reflecting their learning. Additionally, general education and art teachers can team up for art lessons for elementary students. This allows students to receive more art instruction each week! Thankfully, there are amazing art lessons ready to go!
