Nailing your Art Demo Podcast AME 147



Nailing Your Art Demo: AME 147

When you demonstrate a project, your goal is to communicate the process in a way that connects to the students. A demo lays out the steps, so each student can fully understand the steps and complete the lesson.

The question is how do you do that?

In this episode, I’ll go over my experiences with different tools and technology that I’ve tried for art demos (what worked and didn’t work.) Plus, classroom management tips that will really help you nail your art demo.

Join the Dazzlers Facebook Group Podcast Aftershow to talk more about these demo tips + share pictures of your demonstrations style.

    This is great. Is it referring to only a demo for a class you already teach? I am trying to get an art teacher job and looking for a recommendation of a good demo lesson for an interview. Thanks

      The strategies outlined in the podcast talk about how the various ways you can communicate the process of teaching art to kids. We have lots of free lessons on this site, so feel free to explore. Also, our Youtube channels shows videos of me teaching the lesson.

    This was incredibly helpful! I have been teaching for a long time, but this still challenged me to up my game. Thank you!
