Welcome Matthew Jones, our Artist in Resident for the next two weeks.
Here are some great sites to use in your classrooms the week you will not be coming to Matthew:
Albright Knox Art Games - great to use with direct instruction/interaction and a projector for lower grades
Origami Folding instruction videos I have downloaded some origami folding videos for the wiki. The first one is a must do for all grade levels - the younger the kids, the larger square of paper you should use.
For eMINTS classrooms....An interactive Sumi painting program where students can practice with tools, strokes, and color - a product from this would be great for art night. Lower grades could do this with whole class - would be fun
