Art teachers usually are in need of new supplies--and they welcome them. But try not to focus just on supplies when choosing a gift for an art teacher. Art teachers are naturally creative and will appreciate a gift that reflects a love for artistry and beauty. Fashionable items with an "artist's flair" also make great gifts. With your child's help, brainstorm gift ideas for the teacher who has worked so hard to inspire your child's creativity.
Purchase a scarf that has a famous painting silk-screened on it. If you know a master artist whom the teacher likes, such as Monet or Rembrandt, then get a scarf featuring a famous work from that artist.
Blank Masterpiece Kit
Does your child's art teacher paint mostly with oils, acrylics or watercolours? Maybe she paints with a combination of all three. Choose several tubes of paint, a few professional artist brushes and a pre-stretched canvas or block of paper. Together, these items make a "blank masterpiece kit" that allows the teacher to explore her creativity and produce a new work of art on her own time.
Present your child's art teacher with a style and medium of jewellery that you know she likes. If she likes hand-carved wooden jewellery, then give her an intricately carved medallion or cuff bracelet. Blown glass and ceramics make creative and sometimes unusual jewellery pieces. Avoid rings, unless you know the size of the teacher's fingers.
Have your child make an original work of art especially for the teacher. Let your child be creative and draw or paint in whatever way he is inspired. Take the finished piece to a local frame shop to have it matted and framed. The teacher will have a special, creative gift that will remind her of how much she influenced one child.
