Flipping your instruction can be a lifesaver in the art room. Traditional and TAB classrooms alike can benefit from using flipped classroom strategies in a multitude of ways. Not only will you have a digital record of your lesson plans, but flipping can help free up prep time, making those repetitive, mundane demonstrations (like how to wash a paintbrush) feel less draining. Flipping can also help you build a library of techniques and methods for students to access whenever they may need them. Perhaps more importantly, using flipped lessons can relieve the strain on your voice.
