The 2021/22 IPMM Arts Education Curriculum is live and available for purchase right now! We’re so excited to put this labor of love out into the world, to share with our community of teachers and educators. This comprehensive curriculum is 80+ pages long and includes 16 remixable and reusable lesson plans.
The lesson plans are divided into three phases, each of which correspond to a different prong of our See, Think, Do pedagogy.
The lesson plans culminate in a class-wide Art Gallery activity, where you’ll hang works produced by your classroom of artists in your school or other community space.
Students will have undergone the whole journey, from simply learning about artists to becoming artists of their own, or See, Think, Do!
To give you a sense of the kinds of lesson plans included, this article will unpack a lesson plan and explain its educational objectives and how it satisfies National Art Standards.
To use any of the lesson plans included in the IPMM Arts Education Curriculum, you simply pick an artist from the Living Artists Section and use their work to inform the lesson. Although some of the lesson plans are built to be individual or group-specific, many are scalable and could work well as either.
