Art club project ideas?
A Colleague and I decided to start an art club for 5th graders at our elementary school. There is no art program and we thought it would be "enriching". I am not sure how to approach the activities. We plan to meet two times a month. I am not sure how to balance instruction and projects. If you have an art club, how did you start? and what projects/activities did you find successful?

Art club
I do not have an art club, but there are a few great sites for resources. Google the following: the incredible art department, artsonia, and check out this blog-

You could have a theme , a particular medium , or subject matter for each meeting. This could also include some art history and discussion for what they did last time (if it is a project that they work on at home in and then bring in the following meeting) or have a critique at the end of each lesson/meeting. At that age they will want to produce some art work.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 12:11 PM.
