While I am not an Art Teacher, I believe flipping an art class provides a method for enriching, reinforcing and expanding art lessons. Let’s put that idea into context. If I was planning a lesson on origami (the Japanese art of paper folding), I would give students class time to create an origami object of their choice perhaps referencing a website such as http://www.origami-instructions.com/. I would also ask students to photograph each step of the process and use PowerPoint to describe that process to others interested in creating a similar object. At the end of this unit students could exchange their PowerPoints to see if the documented steps could be duplicated… a great way to evaluate the outcome.
I also found a web site called “From iPads to Crayons” which contains wonderful ideas for flipping the art classroom. http://www.coetail.com/melissaenderle/2013/11/10/flipping-the-art-classroom/
As far as the topics of studio practices or aesthetics… you may want to view the discussions found in Teachers Engage Community titled “Give Content a Voice” or “Using and Making Films for the Classroom” Both discussions have additional ideas relating to videos.
