Infusing Art into the 21st Century Classroom: The Elements of Art for the K-5 Classroom will introduce the basics of art (color, line, shape, form, texture, value and space). Art making can inspire curiosity, openness, and dialogue. Early art appreciation will stimulate creative thinking and interdisciplinary learning. The extremely important influence of culture and history will be communicated. Teachers can adjust provided art lesson plans into their K-5 curriculum and fulfill state/district standards. Through viewing art, discussing it, and creating artwork teachers will go through the same creative process their students will.

I believe the course would benefit from students being able to submit work after two or three modules and get some feedback. Then you would know that you were on the right track rather than waiting till the very end to submit all the work.
