As teachers, we are really good at maximizing students' independent learning times by setting out guided learning centers where they can further extend their understanding by consolidating skills or as provocations for exploring new concepts.
By including visual art and craft in our centers, we can help students develop their creativity, problem solving, perseverance and fine motor skills.
I have written 2 resources of Art Learning Center ideas that you can use to support this curriculum area in your classroom.
Set 1 contains ideas about:
* Play-dough sculpture
* Pipe-cleaner sculpture
* Drawing guides
Set 2 contains ideas about:
* Chalk board
* Art puzzles
* Still life
The 2 resources contain all labels and information for setting up these centers and it is recommended that the activities are rotated regularly to keep it fresh.
In New Zealand they are also available as a combined set mailed out on CD from:
