‘Avoiding Cliches in Art’ is a starter activity that gets your students to think about cliches in art and then encourages them to avoid them in their own work. It asks them to work in groups and brainstorm various topics for art projects and then dismiss the first ideas that come into their head and think more deeply.
Allow 15 – 20 minutes for this starter activity.

I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.
I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.
I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
