Beyond the Basics e-Course
I’m thrilled to introduce Beyond the Basics, the second e-course offered by Deep Space Sparkle. Like my first e-course, Beyond the Basics is an online course that you can do right from your own home, no matter what your time zone.
This 4-week e-course moves beyond the basic art techniques offered in Teaching Art 101 and takes you inside the teachings of form-based art projects, ceramics, papier-mache, acrylics, color theory and collage. This e-course will guide you through the techniques for each of these practices and will give you lessons for grades kindergarten through sixth grade. Many of these lessons can be adapted for middle school as well.
This course is jammed packed with lesson videos, photo lesson tutorials, PDF art lesson plans for you to print, handouts, art supply lists and teacher tips. Participate in the e-course-only forum with other art teachers from around the world; share ideas, ask questions and hear what works! Share your homework on the Beyond the Basics Flickr site (homework is always optional, but there is a new twist to homework requirements for this e-course… no pressure, but there may be prizes involved!)
