Art in the Special Ed Classroom

We have been in school for almost a month.  (I can't believe it either!)  So far, this is the BEST year yet!  My kids love art and I love teaching through the arts.  I am always on the look-out for amazing art resources to use with my kiddos, but they are hard to come by.  This summer, I found an incredible resource that was created by Whimsy Workshop.  She does ALL of the work for you!  There are background information sheets for each type of art that she includes.  There are 3 art projects for each country, and each project has step-by-step directions with pictures!  Not only are we learning about cultures from around the world and geography, we are also creating lots of art and learning about different techniques. Here are some of the projects we have completed already this year.

Surfers from Australia 


Chinese Dragons

Chinese Flower Blossom Fans (before we folded them) 
Koi Fish

 Pretty amazing, huh?!  The techniques that Whimsy Workshop shows, are easy enough for kids of all ages and abilities to be successful!  My kids are so proud of their work!  Check out her product, Art Around the World.
