It’s that time of the year again! Students and teachers are heading back to the classroom, for the first full year of in-person instruction since the outbreak of Covid-19. In many cases, electives like art, music, and drama fell by the wayside during the pandemic, as core classes became the priority during the precious few moments teachers had with their students. However, we know that these classes are especially crucial for social-emotional growth, creative problem solving, and self-expression. This year, arts education needs to be prioritized to keep students on track!
For classroom teachers juggling several different subjects, we know that this can be tough. You aren’t necessarily specialized in art, and aren’t sure how to approach arts education in a year where a lot of catch-up may be required. It can be challenging to keep art lesson plans fresh, interesting, and creative, when you’re not an art expert and have tons of other lesson plans to write at the same time.
You’re not alone, and we know that classroom teachers are often overburdened and under-resourced. That’s why we created the IPaintMyMind Arts Education Curriculum. It’s perfect for your needs, and can be tailored to fit your timeline, pacing, and class skill level. (Plus, it satisfies National Art Standards!) The curriculum culminates in a Student Art Gallery, where students get to show off their artwork and what they’ve learned along the process.
