The workbook, Art for the Elementary Educator, is an excellent resource for education and art majors at the college level, current art and classroom teachers, and home-schooled students. It encompasses art education concepts and ideas with strategies for writing integrated lessons for grades kindergarten through fifth grade.

This workbook is not the ‘traditional’ academic textbook. It is written as an engaging narrative with a fictitious principal, art teacher and classroom teachers. It chronicles twenty school days with examples of integrated lessons, student artwork, art techniques and original rhymes as a teaching tool.

The book’s interactive feature contains art pages for displaying photos of student artwork, art assignments and directions for the teacher to dabble in art making. The majority of articles and activities speaks to creativity, art styles, art criticism, art history, lesson planning, a thematic approach to study cultures, addresses stages of children’s art and features a copious amount of children’s artwork
