Claire West Flowers Art Game
Ready to ignite your elementary art curriculum with engaging, step-by-step Spring art projects? This Claire West flowers art lesson will boost confidence and creativity. Kids will appreciate her brightly-colored landscape and still-life paintings. Moreover, they’ll enjoy how she splatters and drips paint to achieve visual texture.
And, it’ll help time-starved teachers like you create lesson plans for spring based on Women’s History Month artists like Claire West.
During this art project, your class will learn how Claire West uses space, an element of art, to create depth in her landscape paintings. And, they’ll discover how she uses her sketchbook to record ideas for artworks. Students will paint a flower vase with tempera paint and chalk pastels using the step-by-step guide and PowerPoint.
Plan lessons for students about contemporary artists and art appreciation in a way that excites them. Finally feel confident in your art curriculum and be organized and prepared to teach art!
Can I be honest with you? Art history can sometimes be boring for kids. There, I said it. Teaching about artists and cultures doesn’t have to be a snoozer, though!
