“I just had to let you know how thankful we are to have the Abrakadoodle Art Education program in our school. This program is a delight for an administrator. Our students are not just doing “art projects”; they are learning art.
First of all from an administrative point of view, the Abrakadoodle Art Education program is perfect. It is well organized, and the lesson plans are well laid out. Students progress through the elements of art such as line, color, shape, etc. and create beautiful artworks in the process. We have been very impressed by the quality of art produced by the students. This program lays a great foundation for future education in art.
Secondly, the Abrakadoodle Art Education program frees our classroom teachers from having to try to teach art. Since most of our teachers are not artists, they have, in the past, put a lot of emphasis on craft projects rather than art education. Even when provided with a curriculum, they tended to skip the drawing projects and focus primarily on the cut and paste or coloring lessons. Now they can do holiday and other crafts when they want and not feel guilty or overwhelmed about not being able to teach art well.
Finally, the quality of the instructor is excellent. She meshes well with our school and has a sense of order and discipline that is sometimes missing in art programs…
If your program ever needs a good recommendation, please feel free to call on me. I am an enthusiastic supporter… " - Mrs. Strater, Principal
