I volunteered myself to be the 3rd-12th grade art teacher this year. I did this because I just love art not because I am an artist. So not being an artist means I need to come up with a flow that I can actually demonstrate with my no art training. I love it and the kids love it. I suppose I can't go too wrong since we have never had an art teacher. We are a PreK-12 school with 2.5 certified teachers and an aid. I love it!
I found some really great ideas for using paint chips for art projects on Pinterest. I found lots of amazingly fun ideas http://pinterest.com/craftyscientist/paint-chip-projects/. Last week I raided the Home Depot and Lowes paint chip dislpays and introduced the concept of color harmonies. The lesson was to choose a color harmony to create a piece of arts using repeated shapes.
