Bring art to your classroom or take your students to art! Consider the wonderful possibilities which art offers for incorporating grammar, vocabulary, and pertinent cultural information in your classroom! You are invited to share an activity or a project in which art is used as part of the teaching and learning experience. (Please interpret "art" in general terms: even the use of crayons can result in an artful language related task!) Music, sculpture, film, theatre, creative writing: These are all forms of art, especially when used to gain mastery of a language. We encourage submission for simple, quick warm-up activities and ideas for introducing new or for practicing old material. Projects which extend over the course of a semester are also welcome.
