No lesson plans just an art teachers walk through of the various mediums she used in teaching her art program and her ideas for introducing & selecting materials and storing supplies. Probably more appropriate for someone with an art degree or experience teaching art than a parent. Other then finding a few suggestions for supplies (but not where to purchase) or ideas on mediums to use (clay instead of playdough) I really didn't find anything useful that I could apply to my homeschool.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374527709, Paperback)

An inspiring and comprehensive guide to art education.

In this accessibly written guide for classroom and art teachers as well as parents, Nancy Beal shows how to release children's marvelous gifts of expression. Beal believes that children must first of all be comfortable with their materials. She focuses on six basic media: collage, drawing, painting, clay, printmaking, and construction. She gives practical consideration to all facets of a teacher's responsibility: how each material should be introduced; what supplies are best; how a classroom may be set up to support children's explorations; and how teachers may ask open-ed questions to stimulate personal and meaningful expression. Beal also discusses how to integrate art into social studies and how to make museum visits productive and fun. Each chapter includes a section specifically for parents on helping their children create art at home.

Beal has taught art to children for twenty-five years and is able to draw on a wealth of examples from her classroom. The Art of Teaching Art to Children is extensively illustrated with her students' art, visual proof of her gifts as an educator and art enthusiast.
