WAIT: Teaching With
Teachers experiment by using arts casually for enjoyment and give students chances to work creatively.
WAIT: Teaching About and In
When teaching about and in the arts, there is a conscious effort to develop aesthetic thinking. Students are engaged in exploration, creation, response, performance, reflection and evaluation.
WAIT: Teaching Through
The emphasis in teaching through the arts is creating meaning using the arts.
Elements and Principle of Design
- Balance - sense of being comfortable, symmetrical and asymmetrical balance
- Movement - focal point

- Contrast - Contrast shows differences between the elements of art, which are: line, color, shape, value, space and texture
- Emphasis - given to a center of interest, which might be the largest, brightest or lightest subject
- Pattern - created through a repetitions use of the same element to create an overall design
- Unity - the harmony of all the visual elements in a composition
Crucial question to ask when using a two-prong lesson

Rhoda Kellogg's studies of children's drawing show . . .
- Children's art develops in stages
- 1-2 years: Random scribbling
- 2-7 years: Shape making
- 3-5 years: Symbol making
- Scribbles turn into shapes which turn into symbols
