DeSimone, Jana – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
Sepia tones range from pale neutral cream, tan, and amber all the way to deep chocolate brown; some even have dark green undertones. Sepia tones are used primarily by photographers. Photographers opt to print their photos in sepia because of the warmer, almost old-fashioned look it has. Art is considered "anthropomorphic" when an object or an…

Corsino, Janet – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012

This project was first developed for middle-school art students in an attempt to help them better understand figure drawing. In subsequent years, it has been amended and adapted to integrate with other…

Hahn, Nic – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
As a middle school art teacher, the author has learned that it is difficult to get to know students in just one quarter. At her school, each student in grades six through eight takes one quarter of art every year.

Eaton, Dolores E. – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
A title, a cover, and pages with "substance" bound together--this is what the author's eighth-grade students decided were the essential elements of a book. There could be more, but no less. In art, one does judge a book by its cover. In this article, the author describes how her students created their books. (Contains 1 online resource.)

Wilson, Kathy – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
Telling art students to do anything they want can be dangerous. It's not something teachers often do, but this is a project where anything goes. In this article, the author describes how her students created a Mardi Gras type mask, then incorporated it into a mixed-media composition.

Katz, Andrew – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
In this article, students build a prototype guitar. One way to get students to take creative risks is to allow playful approaches to their designs--let them come up with wild or silly ideas. By starting from such a wide-open place, many students will change their definitions and assumptions of what a guitar has to be. The result will be a wider…

Venola, Penelope – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
Popular culture is a relatively new area of study in the artroom, and combining it with the demands of a rigorous curriculum requires some thought. Combining threads from several sources was the key to an exciting exploration of pattern inspired by a newspaper headline. In 2006, a landmark case was settled in Austria, which repatriated five famous…
