Two art courses are available for Grade 1. Developing Motor Skills in Art includes more paper and craft projects. Art With a Purpose has more coloring and drawing exercises. These courses can greatly minimize the teacher's workload and give practical direction to art skills. It is recommended for both of these courses that the teacher have her own student packet or Artpac to do sample lessons beforehand. Extra packets would provide spares for the times someone needs to start over.

You don't need to be an accomplished artist to teach it. This well-planned course includes exercises in coloring, shading with crayons, simple grid drawing, painting, cutting stencils, making greeting cards and booklets, and doing freehand drawing.
