Teaching art appreciation is a challenge for most art teachers.
Not enough time.
When students come to art class expecting to ONLY make their own art, how do you convince them that looking at art is fun, interesting, informative, and important?
Not enough knowledge.
What if students ask about something you don’t know the answer to–the artist’s life, the historical context, or how the artwork was made?
Not enough student interest.
What’s worse–the complaining or the blank stares? How do you make students enjoy looking at art when all they do is say they’re bored?
Not enough support from admins.
Even art teachers are being forced to teach to the test. How can we convince admins that looking at art isn’t just valuable, it’s essential?
That’s why I’m offering a brand new FREE email series, Beyond the Surface: Teach Students How to Dive Deeper into an Artwork to Make Connections and Meaning.
