Free Art Resources

Fifi is a budding little artist and i’m forever looking for free art resources to keep her occupied. Below are a few free online tutorials I have stumbled across over the years.

Ted Harrison Art and More! from Whimsy Workshop Teaching
Free Art Resources
We studied the art of Ted Harrison, who painted in the north of Canada. His colorful but simple images are perfect for elementary students.

Free Printable: Faith Ringgold Inspired Quilt Template from Art is Basic
Free Art Resources
Many art teachers have taught about the artist Faith Ringgold and had their students create paper quilts. I have a free printable for you that will make this lesson easier. My daughter did something similar at her school in her classroom. That’s where I got the idea to use a printed template to make it easier for the students.

Free Art Tutorials from Mindful Art Studio
Free Art Resources
Free art tutorials are a great way to increase your skills on your own time and on a budget. I have lots of resources for art journaling and mixed media techniques. These are techniques for using art for self-expression and relaxation, not art therapy.

FREE Yayoi Kusama Artist Study and Book List from Homeschool Giveaways & Freebies
Free Art Resources
Are you familiar with the art of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama? Kusama’s artwork is so fun to introduce to kids because it is so colorful, playful, and meaningful. Dig into one of the illustrated children’s books about Kusama and her life. The books on this list are an easy, no prep way to introduce a little art history into your home school day. No prior knowledge is needed. Cuddle, read, and learn about Kusama together!

*Op Art Shaded Shapes from Kinder Art
Free Art Resources
Students learn about “Op Art” and then create a picture (optical illusions) that can play tricks with the eyes.

When something plays tricks on your eyes it is called an Optical Illusion. Op Art is artwork that plays tricks on our eyes.

Artist M.C. Escher is famous for having created lots of different kinds of Op Art.

These printable sketchbook ideas are perfect as conversation starters, early finishers, or brainstorming for projects to come. Keep a stack on hand for whenever you need them!

Seahorse Art Project for Kids from The Crafty Classroom
Free Art Resources
These beautiful seahorses are adapted from an amazing torn paper collage I found at Torn Paper Paintings by Wanda Edwards. I thought it might be fun to recreate this seahorse in a way that children could color and cut with ease so I drew a template based on this seahorse and decided to color it with bleeding tissue paper instead. It’s not as stunning as Ms. Edwards torn paper art, but I think your children will be amazed at the work they can do, and this technique might inspire them to start making their own shapes from paper as well.

Dental Health Resources

Dental health is important, no matter how old you are. Getting your child into the habit of brushing their teeth at least twice a day from young is key. Here are a few fun activities to reinforce brushing their teeth.

Dental Health Resources from Homeschool Giveaways
Dental Health Resources
February is Children’s Dental Health Month. I know it’s not unusual for kids to hate brushing their teeth. And my kids are no exception, besides the 3 year old, but I think she just likes the bubble gum flavored safe toothpaste. So this year we are going to spend most of February learning how to better brush our teeth and why it’s so important.

How to Brush Your Teeth Instructions from Sparklebox
Dental Health Resources

Dental Health Resources and a FREEBIE from Teacher 123
Dental Health Resources
February is Dental Health Month. This month is a great time to invite your local dentist to visit your class. Many of them will even bring a little goodie bag for your students.
Do your students ever lose their teeth at school and then can’t find their tooth when it’s time to go home? It can create quite a commotion at dismissal time. I found these little tooth treasure boxes and tooth necklaces help solve this problem. Quite a few come with each order, so you may want to ask a teammate to split the order with you.

Life Skills Resources

Life Skills covers a variety of topics, from personal hygiene to writing your resume. Here I’m sharing early education life skills resources. These resources are readily available. In South Africa, Life Skills is a subject taught in school and are mandatory from Grade R (Kindergarten) till Grade 12.

Life Skills Curriculum from Freedom Homeschooling

Life Skills Training: Autism & Independent Living Skills from Very Special Tales
Life Skills Resources
During the last 20 years, a variety of terms have been coined to describe those life skills that allow individuals to self-care and function independently in society. Amongst these terms, you will find independent living skills, daily living skills, functional curriculum, functional skills, life skills and survival skills.

Although they may not describe the exact same set of skills, they all describe sets of skills that empower us to become independent adults successfully functioning in our communities.

Kids learn many of those skills through observation and imitation. But the reality for children with disabilities (cognitive, developmental, physical, sensory) may be different.

Life skills training is vital for them. Skills that most kids learn through observation may need to be specifically trained in kids with disabilities.

Healthy Vs. Unhealthy Food Sort~ Pack a Healthy Lunch from 123kteach on Teachers Pay Teachers

At the end of the week or month have students check off whether they accomplished the goal. Then they will choose new goals to work on!

You could have students tape their goal sheet to their desk, paste it in a notebook, or keep it in a folder. The important thing is that they are revisiting it frequently to monitor their goals and keep track of their accomplishments. You can also keep these for parent conferences or send them home to keep parents informed of their child’s progress.
