After spending 15 years teaching overseas, I decided to start keeping a record of all my art lessons and projects. This is how Art Lessons for Kids came to life. I have taught elementary art in Bolivia, Turkey, Indonesia, Venezuela and Bahrain. I am now the Lower School Principal in an international school in China and loving my new role.
I have also been a classroom teacher in Kindergarten, grade one and grade two and have successfully incorporated a lot of art into the curriculum.
I decided to go back to teaching art after spending some time in Italy a few summers ago. Being surrounded by so much art made me realize that the art room was the place for me! I am having so much fun and absolutely love helping kids truly believe that they are artists too! I have a gorgeous son who loves having ‘Ms. Mom’ as his art teacher every year and it’s so wonderful to watch him explore and love art time as much as mama does.
If you have kids you are very welcome to visit my son’s blog called Easy Projects for Boys–it seems he is following my blogging steps!
All my lessons are for students from Pre-Kinder to Grade Seven but don’t let these age levels stop you from adapting these lessons for any age level.
I hope you get inspired to try some of the fun lessons and share this blog using the share buttons below if you enjoyed your visit. :)
