Art Fundamentals for the Classroom

Teach the Elements of Art

I created "The Elements of Art - Teacher Pack" to provide teachers with solid presentation materials that simply make sense.  Each presentation (PowerPoint and Keynote) is straight forward and easy to follow and understand.  Each lesson includes corresponding handouts that follow the presentation directly and are offered in PDF format. Each lesson is designed for continuity so that students grasp the concepts and are interested in the material.  Here's what's included...
