Lydia-Kay Blackburn has been teaching art for over twenty years in public and private school systems and in her own studio. She earned her Bachelors, Masters and Specialist degrees in art education from the University of Georgia.

Lydia-Kay has a passion for encouraging children to push themselves a little bit farther than they thought they could go, resulting in the discovery of their creative potential while building self confidence.

The Arttango art program offers public and private elementary schools, teachers or home schools the opportunity to provide an art education to there students in any or all grade levels, Kindergarten through 5th grade. Students will learn about the elements of art and how to apply each of them in their artwork.

The lessons in Arttango are based on the National Art Standards and reinforce learning in other curriculum areas such as language arts, math, science and history. Instruction is presented by Art Specialist Lydia-Kay Blackburn via video format or you can obtain the lesson projects online. The 180 art lessons that make up the K-5 curriculum can be presented to the class in several ways, among them DVD player and TV, a computer or a projector with a Smart Board or a screen. There is also an online version available.

There are 30 lessons, one per week for the entire school year for each grade. Each movie lesson lasts between 7 15 minutes and any part can be replayed at any time. Prior to showing the lesson to your students, we encourage the teacher to preview each lesson. This way they can gather the needed materials and provide an adequate work area. The students are then expected to have 30 40 minutes to work on their projects with adult supervision. The material for the art projects are typically found in elementary school classrooms.
