Art Teacher’s Curriculum Workbook

Many have asked how I organize and plan my art curriculum. It hasn’t been an easy question to answer, but I’ve tried. Many times, in fact. I’ve talked about fine-tuning an art curriculumcreating your own curriculum and even took a stab at helping you all plan your lessons.

But I knew there had to be an easier way for art teachers to create their curriculum that considered projects they loved, art techniques and standards. Sure it helps to have someone create an art curriculum for you and tell you what to do every step of the way, but what about those projects that mean something to your school community or culture? Or lessons that you are passionate about? In short, we need help personalizing our curriculums for our own art program.

After working on my own methods for ten years, I’ve spent the last year creating worksheets to help sort out what’s important to you. If you are anything like me, planning art projects is more of a hobby. I love doing it. I scour Pinterest in search of inspiration, spend hours at the bookstore and pour through my blog feeds to see what my favorite art bloggers are up to…this is food for my creative soul.

My Curriculum Workbook helps to sort through all of your creative pursuits, but also reminds you to include State Standards and The Elements of Art. There’s a section devoted to your best and worst lessons, a place to create your art project dream list and a place to make a final plan.

And I know you will appreciate the beautiful colors…begone boring teacher planners!

Art Project Planner is a place to list all the standards, techniques, must-do projects and curriculum connections. This is your place to dream big!

Use the DSS Curriculum or create your own with the blank grade level worksheets.

The Art Session Log Book is where you record all that you have completed. This is my most useful sheet as it tells me–at a glance–what I actually did with the students.

The Elements of Art Worksheets provide the space to jot down all the lessons that fulfill requirements. You can use this sheet when planning your curriculum.

The Lesson Plan Snapshot is a copy-ready template to use when planning your own lessons plans. The abbreviated version will fit nicely in your Curriculum workbook.

Is it Editable?

This workbook is designed to be printed onto paper (I like card stock for the planning pages) and written on with pretty pens the old-fashion way. It was not designed to be edited on your computer. However, If you have Adobe Pro, you can edit many of the TEXT FIELDS. The design of the workbook (design, font, layout) is NOT editable.  Please make sure you understand this before purchasing.

How to Access your DIGITAL Lessons

By adding your email and password to our system, we can provide you with a history of all your purchased art lessons. This means you can access them anytime you wish through the “My DSS” button. Please note: Your “My DSS” password is unrelated to your e-course password

Once your payment goes through, you will be guided to a download link so you can see your lesson plan straight away. All lesson plans that you order will remain in your own personalized “DSS store” for access whenever and wherever you want so even if you didn’t received the link via email, you can always access the lessons via “My DSS”.

I like to print out my lesson plans and place in a lesson plan book, but if you are watchful of your ink supply, you may just want to print just the handouts. I’ve designed them in black and white so you can photocopy them easily and cheaply.

    I am a second year art teacher with a degree in English Lit and the ability to create my own curriculum . I didn’t know whereto start and how to make the lessons meet state curriculum standards. This workbook – 76 pages- offers guidelines on how to teach Elements of Art, California State guidelines, and 16 lessons on teaching the elements, meeting the standards and art techniques.

    Most projects are 2 day lessons, so TECHNICALLY- if you see each class once a week- you have 32 weeks planned. There are planning sheets, pages on planning each lesson, and blanks to help you plan 16 lessons for yourself.

    She covers grades K – 6. giving guidelines for each grade. This was the most helpful for me. My needs are k – 8, but I am able to use this workbook to meet the needs of my older students. I am not sure I can come up with anything to improve this workbook.
