Elements of Art Handout and The smARTteacher

I try my best to stay up to date on the best way to stay connected with other art teachers.  I follow many teachers on Pinterest and look at lots of the awesome blogs out there.  I recently joined the Art Teachers Facebook page which is also a great resource.  Yesterday, I stumbled across this site...  It is a great way to share resources with other art teachers.  I just uploaded the Elements of Art Handout that I use with my 5th grades in their sketchbooks.  It is a very easy way to share files.  I am hoping to add more files soon.  This site is also backed by companies like Dick Blick and Crystal.  Very cool!

I realize I might be a bit behind in my discover, but I had to share.  I love finding all these great resources as I gear up for a new year :)

Monsters Love Colors

I was at Target today and saw this book, Monster Love Colors, on the shelf.  Being that I am an elementary art teacher, I was instantly drawn to it and, of course, had to buy it.  It  reminds me of, Mouse Paint....but with monsters   Who doesn't love cute colorful monsters   The primary colored monsters color secondary monsters.  I  already foresee a cute monster color theory lesson plan in my 1st graders future.  I would definitely recommend this book!

* a quick side note....  This book was $15.99 at Target, but they price match Amazon, so I only paid $10.87 :)
