Art Lesson Plans from Caldecott Medal Award
The award-winning illustrations of 57 Caldecott Books (1938-1994) have inspired a
multitude of lessons that guide students in creating art with similar qualities. Focusing
on such principles and elements as line, color, texture, shape, value, and space, these
classroom-tested projects have step-by-step instructions, materials lists, and detailed
illustrations for teachers who have little or no art training. Various art media are
explored, including pencil, crayon, marker, colored pencil, chalk, stencils, collage,
watercolor, tempera, color mixing, and printmaking. These projects use limited materials
so they're great for the classroom as well as the art room.
