Kathy Barbro has a wonderful blog filled with "classroom-tested" art projects for kids. She created her blog in hopes that teachers, left to make up for cuts in formal art programs, would find useful ideas to use in their classrooms. While I am fortunate to teach at a school with a wonderful art program, taught by expert artists and teachers, I am constantly integrating art projects into my curriculum. I'm always looking for new ideas. My students respond to reading and math problems through illustration, they create diagrams and life cycles for science units, and make crafts for holidays, cultural traditions and school fundraising events. Kathy's blog is filled with inspiration. Art Projects for Kids is helpfully organized by grade level, artist, medium, and theme. Below are just a few of Kathy's projects and there are many, many more. Explore for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
