Drawing Magic

3 Credits
Explore exciting and unusual approaches to drawing using a variety of materials and techniques. In addition to enhancing creativity, this course is loaded with endless opportunities for critical thinking and problem-solving. You will love the many ways these drawing experiences can be connected to - and will support - other areas of your curriculum. No special drawing tools or "artistic talent" required.

Drawing Magic provides students the opportunity to personally explore twenty unusual drawing experiences. Having been specifically designed to build confidence in the K - 8 teacher with little or no previous art training or background in art education, Drawing Magic can serve as a first-time exposure to drawing, or it can serve as a continuation of a teacher's elementary art education training. (Teachers who do possess a significant background in art and in art education, will find this course to be of value as well.)

I have been involved in the arts my entire life, and as an educator, I have seen firsthand how the integration of meaningful art experiences into existing classroom curriculum can consistently lead to advancements in student learning and achievement. Areas such as critical thinking, problem-solving, authentic learning, teamwork, and intrinsic motivation, are all enhanced when art becomes a systematic part of the classroom landscape. For this reason, I’m very enthusiastic about showing other teachers – regardless of their art backgrounds – how easy it can be to incorporate this simple yet profound element into the curriculum they are already teaching – with spectacular results!
