How Meet the Masters Works: 

Timed, Scripted, Standards-Based Art Lessons in 3 Steps

step1

Step 1: Assembly

Introducing the Masters—Multi-Purpose Room or Classroom (20-45 minutes)
The Meet the Masters experience begins with a multi-media assembly using engaging Powerpoint slides, artist voices and music where the children learn about the fascinating lives and famous works of the Master Artists.  Interactive questions and multi-media content will captivate the students while walking through a virtual museum filled with interesting stories and facts. An art background is not necessary because all lesson plans are scripted, illustrated and timed. The art vocabulary, artist name cards, art elements, props and visuals are all included and organized—nothing to research or gather.

step2

Step 2: Student Worksheets

Learning from the Masters—Classroom (15-30 minutes)
Now that the children have a true connection to the artist, it is time to introduce the techniques which made the art revolutionary. Back in the classroom, they will work on a mostly self-guided technique packet which will be the pencil-on-paper means for your student to learn from the Masters. The worksheets reinforce the material previously presented in Introducing the Masters, and further prepare them for success in the final step—the art project.

step3

Step 3: Student Art Projects

Working with the Masters—Classroom (50-60 minutes)
After learning the inspiration and techniques of each Master the children are ready for the real fun. Your classroom will transform into an art studio as the well-equipped teacher leads the students on a step-by-step journey through the art project. Often in the same medium, style or subject matter as the Master, the students will discover their creativity while developing confidence in their own unique abilities. Training DVDs can assist the teacher with step by step detailed instructions.

Every artist unit comes in multiple levels to match up to the grades offered at your school: kindergarten, beginner (grades 1 & 2), intermediate (grades 3 & 4) and advanced (grades 5+).
