Art History for Kids

Hello Solana Vista Room One!

Posted on: November 20, 2008

Welcome to Art History for Kids!

In the coming months, watch this blog to view lesson plans the day of and use the information to discuss what your children are learning. My goal will be to provide both Art History and hands-on Art Education for the children of Room One. The final piece will culminate in the classroom art project in the Spring for the Solana Beach Ball.

As always, if you’d like more information or links to additional resources to continue the learning, please don’t hesitate to drop me an email. Click here.

Looking forward to a great semester of art, laughter and learning!
