This coming Friday I start teaching a group of kids art. I will have 3 elementary kids and 2 high school kids. I teach them all at the same time, and a variety of things. It is a challenge to figure out things that all age groups can do and yet be challenged as well. Last I had everyone do the same projects (trying to push each one to do his/her best). I am thinking this year I am going to have certain things I will do with all of them, but mostly have the older group work on one thing and the younger ones work on something that is more for their level. Can't wait to see what all they do this year.

I also teach classes with different age groups.  I have classes with kids ages 3-11 as well as some special needs children.  It's amazing what I learn each session.  :)  Keep up the good work!

Thanks. I am having them start off doing self portraits and for those who finish quickly I might have them draw their classmates.
