Art for Kids Who “Hate Art”: Unconventional Art Projects for Inside and Outside the Elementary Classroom
In my first year of teaching, I was terrified of teaching art. It was a subject I had always struggled with and that a few of the kids had already decided they HATED. Thankfully, I was able to find some art activities that everyone could be happily engaged in!
When I first started teaching, I didn’t quite know how to approach the drama section of our art curriculum. We would do a few skits, occasionally play a version of Bus Stop where one kid had to make another laugh, and call it a day. I wanted to breathe some life into our drama activities and make things fun again. Improv games were a perfect fit!
