I like this idea from a fellow art teacher - "I spray painted numbers on each art table using stencils. There are 8 different color tables, ROYGBV + Black and Brown. Each kid sits at a spot that has a color and number. They look at my job chart to find out what their cleanup job is. At the end of art, I pull popsicle sticks that match the table colors and numbers. If I pull green #2 and your table is all cleaned up, you get to pick a Jolly Rancher out of my treat bowl.
Time crunch art lesson this would be perfect for an art party! using table materials to show Elements and Principles of Design, kids LOVED this. Tables had to work together then we walked around to compare and share. Pattern and Radial Balance shown here.
