CoachArt Activity Pro Tips

  • Come with an example of your project (even if it’s just a picture on your phone!).
  • Collaborate with your student on what projects you want to do or skills to focus on.
  • Make techniques clear. Demonstrate what you want your student to do.
  • Break down instructions into chewable sizes.
  • Plan for clean up time.
  • Plan for downtime (i.e. when something is cooking or drying):
    • – Use this time to clean up.
    • – Have student recap steps taken for the project.
    • – Play icebreaker games.
    • – Take pictures of the project.
    • – Plan next lesson or make a Pinterest Board together.
