Teaching Contemporary Art
Over the last few years I have devoted myself to the topic of teaching contemporary art to elementary students. I have written several articles on the topic and will present at the 2012 PAEA Conference October 7th.

Greg Percy's Songs in the Key of Art Vol. 1-5 are a great education tool for younger children. My kindergarten and first grade students love these songs and it helps them learn about things like elements of art and about famous artists. One of my favorite songs is the clean up song!
