Abstract: 
If art as a school subject is considered to be essentially about making meaning, primary generalist teachers need only a very limited amount of specialist knowledge to teach it well. What they need most are teaching strategies, both in making images and in appraising images. They also need to grasp how to integrate art appropriately with other subjects. Four strategies are described for making images: verbal reflection, conversational, perceptual, and conventional. Two strategies are outlined for appraisal pictures: a four-part inductive discovery strategy and the Artmaps Compass strategy. Suggestions are made about the appropriateness of each of the strategies for different grade levels. Two exemplary programs are described that both employ these strategies and integrate appropriately with other subject areas.
