Video: My Favorite Simple Visuals for the Art Room

If you have limited wall space in your art room,  you must be selective with types of posters that are worthy of your precious wall real estate. This is why I’ve always had a set or two of Crystal Art Display Cards hanging in my art room. They are small in size, and hit on almost every vocabulary word, art history period (I used them as my art room timeline) and media you can think of. Here is a short video explaining how I use them in my art room.

What are some of your favorite posters for the art room? 

How do you reinforce vocabulary terms?

    Thanks! I can’t wait for my swag box and the conference!

    My favorite posters are the ones I make myself. I design them small in black and white and then enlarge them at Kinkos. Once they are enlarged, I add color by hand. I made my own color wheel using the tempera paint the kids use. I also put red at the top instead of yellow, that way it aligns with the idea of Roy-G-Bv that they learn in science classes.

    Love Crystal productions! They are the only posters I buy-I make the rest! My favorite are the art quotes. I post them throughout the building and in the room. I make my own word wall that circulates the room with vocab and artists. I love seeing students use it when they need to define something or remember a term or artist.
