Check the Art Closet and the La Grange Park or La Grange Library for books that relate to your topic. If requesting books, it takes about one week for books to be delivered to your local library.
The easiest way to show a short video about an artist is to find what you want on YouTube (always preview before showing in class) and request permission to use the teacher’s computer and overhead projector.
Posters are kept in the art closet and should not be removed from school. Click for a complete list of Art Enrichment Posters.
The best thing to do is an internet search for the artist you are presenting; for example, “Monet kids art lessons”. You will find good resources easily.
