Accessing a high quality art education is harder than ever with public schools losing their funding and students highly distanced with hybrid and remote learning. IPaintMyMind is committed to the equitable access of art education and its many benefits. From middle schoolers to kindergartners, students are trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy in their education and one of the hardest classes to maintain over remote learning is art education.
Art requires more physical interaction, and in-depth viewing. And even beyond all that, gathering suitable materials and resources for your students in the time of Covid can be difficult to do with everyone on different pages. How do you make sure each lesson is accessible and easy to participate in, no matter the kind of home situation your students may have?
Teachers and Parents are two of our heroes at IPaintMyMind as they raise, educate, and inspire students. We know that it can be hard to find the time to get extra resources as a teacher. We know parents are always looking to broaden their children’s education, but can’t always put their finger on what they need. This is why we are dedicated to providing easily accessible art education resources, supplies, and inspiration to the heroes who shape our future.
At IPaintMyMind, we believe in the power of art. Whether you’re an art teacher or a parent, sparking creativity in the minds of children is a critical step in expanding their education. Art education can help students develop problem solving skills, critical thinking, and imagination as the greatest minds of tomorrow.
Art education also fosters community, but given social distancing from Covid-19 that can be more difficult to do, which is why the IPaintMyMind Art Guide + Curriculum is now available for purchase! In these socially distanced times, young students are missing the hands-on aspect of their studies, but IPaintMyMind has created an entire customizable art curriculum for every student to reignite their love for art!
And when it rains, it pours, so take advantage of these 5 free tools as well.
Art teachers are heroes and they need all the support we can give. Whether you’re a full time remote educator or a parent looking to rekindle your child’s relationship to art, these Five Free Tools are available to you to reaffirm your commitment to art education in the time of remote learning.
