I'm teaching a new class this year...Art Appreciation. The class is only offered at the 8th grade level. I also still teach Art Production to 8th graders. I tell the kids that Art Appreciation is learning about art and Art Production is creating art. My plan for the class is to hit on some of the highlights of art history. In our first unit, we learned about cave paintings and then created our own cave art using natural materials. I think the kids thought this would be really easy....it wasn't. Colin and Taylor did a very nice job on their's!
