Make it Fun!

 I love teaching middle school art, but they are a totally different breed of student than the little guys.  You must earn their respect, and it won't come just because you're an adult.  They are incredibly social, and they are very driven by fun.  Given all of that I try very hard to provide an avenue for socializing and fun, while they create.  Trust me, it works!

They are fun to be around, and make me laugh every day, not to mention the art work which they are capable of creating is absolutely amazing!

  1. Indeed, I agree on that. Both the ones in middle school and the little guys have different aspects in which you should keep in mind to gain their desire, trust, as well as even become a "friend" to them in order for them to bring out their best and actively participate in most activities. Great blog! As you have or haven't known I have a painting blog. If you aren't doing anything you could drop by anytime. Thanks!
