Andrea Mulder-Slater (creator of www.KinderArt.com ) designed this lesson to be
used with children ages 5 and older. However, this lesson can be easily adapted to
work with individuals of all ages as a way of identifying and expressing emotions.
Participants will gain an understanding of how much of a role emotion plays in
art-making as they create paintings based on feelings.

Aboriginal Hand Print
(art + history; art + social studies)
"One old man in Arnhem Land remembered being carried as a child on his father's shoulders as his father climbed up a log leaning against a rock wall. His father then sprayed his hand with red ochre against the rock, leaving a stencil he could still recognize many years later. The main function of the stencils was to record people's presence and association with a site." — Aboriginal Art Online

The stenciled hand print and aboriginal style drawings help children to relate to the man from the Australian Aboriginal Culture stated above, while helping them to understand the use of line in art. A black paper with white splattered paint was used, but white paper with red (ochre) splattered paint would make a nice impression also. Construction paper crayons make bright, bold, linear designs around the hand stencil.

Art Bridges - Hildegard Center: Fabric Bowls
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This lesson could be done with most adults and older kids. It is especially good for
elderly women, as many of them have fond memories of sewing and fabric crafts,
yet they can no longer do those crafts due to vision or fine motor impairments.
This project allows them to make something beautiful with fabric that doesn’t
involve any sewing.

Home Town Map
(art + social studies)
As basic as it seems, young children need to be taught to be observant and aware of their surroundings. This lesson plan helps children in grades K–3 pay more attention to the world around them as they travel back and forth between their homes and their schools. As they create maps of their route, they’ll learn about distance, signs, symbols, landmarks and other things that will reinforce the quickest — and safest — way for them to get to school and back home again. As their classroom teacher or art teacher, you can help your students identify familiar landmarks and create images that reinforce what they already know about their daily journey.

Older students can build more details into their maps, such as weather maps or treasure maps, as well as more complex legends, keys and measurements. Whatever the age of your students, you can help them make this exercise fun!

Both groups of students can take advantage of free city maps and state maps provided by the Department of Transportation and state agencies. Phone books also often include city maps and historical maps. Students will learn that map-making and map-reading can be fun as they trace rivers, parks and the world outside their home and school.

Grade Levels K-6

Note: instructions and materials based on a class of 25 students. Adjust as needed.

How to Create a Vision Board

A Copyrighted Activity Created by and Re-posted with Permission from
Louise Gale http://www.louisegale.com

Objectives:
The participants will:
1. Reflect on goals for themselves for a set point in the future
2. Use the art form of collage to manipulate materials and create artwork that symbolizes those goals and visions

Audiences:
This activity can be used by any age group. Counselors/therapists may adapt this activity for those who are battling depression, addiction, PTSD or other issues.

What is a Vision Board and Why is it Important?
A vision board is simply a board of any size which has pictures, words and other items collaged onto it. The purpose is to create a picture or vision of what you want to attract into your life—this could be where you’d like to visit or live, changes you’d like to make to your existing environment or life, or how you’d like to feel. Displaying your vision board where you will see it every day will help you “tune your brain”, similar to a radio signal, to remind yourself of the goals you have set as you go about your busy life! Visuals are powerful as they tap into your subconscious more than words. I really like to use a combination of visuals and words as the words will also help increase the emotional response. I usually keep my vision board in my bedroom so I wake up to it every day. Remember you don’t have to do this alone. You can invite your family and close friends to take part.

How to Set Up An Art Cart
A Copyrighted Article Re-posted with Permission from Shelley Klammer

http://www.expressiveartworkshops.com/how-to-start-your-own-art-program/how-to-set-up-an-art-cart/

The following is a list of items that you may want to use when setting up an art cart for institutional and medical settings such as hospitals and care homes. I work in a hospital setting with the older adults so I include a variety of pre- prepared projects on my cart, as well as materials for spontaneous art making. Some elders with dementia need a great deal of assistance and some like to paint within pre-drawn lines. Others prefer to work utterly spontaneously. Your art cart will look different than mine but I will share some of the materials and projects that I use with you here.

Intergenerational Stories
A Lesson Developed and Contributed by Christine Hennig, MA, LMHP, ATR With a Link to Copyrighted Dick Blick Lesson Plan “Home Town Map” www.DickBlick.com

Objectives (Elders):
1. To encourage reminiscence, which has been shown to be beneficial for elders

2. To increase feelings of self-worth by discovering that elders have interesting stories to tell about their lives

3. To increase feelings of self-worth by passing on their wisdom to young people

4. To brighten moods through contact with young people

Objectives (Children):
1. To bring history lessons they may have learned in school to life through contact with people who have “lived it”

2. To encourage respect for elders by discovering what they have lived through and learned from their experiences

3. To increase tolerance for disability and aging

Audiences:
This is a project to complete with a small group of elderly people plus a small group of school-aged children. It is recommended that you have group facilitators for both the elders and the children (i.e., at least two—one for the elders and one for the children). Elders should be high-functioning and be able to tell their stories. Elders with mild dementia, but still good long-term memories, can be involved if there is extra staff or volunteers available to work one-on-one with them and the children to encourage and guide.
