As Simple as 1-2-3
Everything needed to structure and teach an effective art program for grades one to three is made simple for the home-school parent or teacher.
This step-by-step process for teaching art is perfect for home-school teachers or parents with limited art skills or time to create their own programs. This system of insight, responses to judgments, ideas, and feelings aligns with public school and state visual arts requirements.
Teaching Art in the Primary Grades is designed to foster lifelong interest in the arts, provide a gauge of what can be expected of children at various ages and grade levels, and present a baseline for measuring growth and skill.
Lesson plans with goals, objects, time frames, techniques, steps, illustrated examples, and assessment of growth are included.

As a homeschooling mother, I am always on the lookout for new materials. Plus, with a daughter who loves art, I was excited to have the opportunity to review this book. I do not consider myself gifted in the field of art, and being military means we often move. So we have not had art instruction available to our family typically. So the idea of having a book that provides step-by-step instructions and does not require me to an art expert was a good thing.
I appreciate how each lesson contains all the instructions and directions for what needs to be done that day. This book covers grades 1-3 and does an excellent job of covering a variety of topics.
I found the lessons to be well-crafted and interesting. I feel it is an excellent book for starting art instruction in the elementary grades. So check it out for yourself.
I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest reivew.

More from Jerry
Ever since I was young, I have always loved art. It was only natural for me to be teaching and sharing the love of art to young people. Over the years, a number of parents, students and fellow teachers and administrators suggested that I should write a book about teaching art, particularly to the emerging beginning artist. This would hopefully help them gain confidence in themselves in return would flow into their reading and writing subjects. After retiring, pondering and headaches, I started putting it together and throwing around ideas to myself on what should be included and “Wala”…..here it is.
