TEACHING ART HAS FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGED

Animated by our central See, Think, Do pedagogy, the IPMM Arts Education Curriculum operates with the fundamental belief that when students dive into appreciating, discussing, and establishing context around art, they’ll be inspired to create art of their own.

At IPMM, we believe that teaching and connecting students with living, working artists, will empower them to believe they can be artists as well.

Students are inherently creative, collaborative art lovers, and our curriculum guides them towards realizing these qualities within themselves! That’s why we ask students to consider art they already love, search for public art around their homes, and otherwise get in touch with the art they experience in their daily lives

The IPaintMyMind Arts Education Curriculum for Teachers, Parents & Caregivers is all about giving you the tools to bring the arts into your classroom and truly connect with your students. We know that the arts are often underfunded and left with the scraps of the school budget. Art teachers have to do a lot with a little and we’ve always been committed to helping as much as we can! The IPMM Arts Education Curriculum is an exciting tool to do just that.

ART + EDUCATION

1. THREE PHASES OF ARTS LEARNING

The IPaintMyMind Arts Education Curriculum isn’t just a list of links. It’s an educational framework that intentionally moves students through our ‘See, Think, Do’ or ‘Experience, Reflect, Make’ pathway that activates teachers/parents and kids at the same time. By getting to know works by various contemporary working artists, contextualizing it, and making art yourselves, you’ll be enriched and engaged at the same time.

2. 16 LESSON PLANS + PROMPTS

As part of our Three Phases of Learning, our team of curriculum designers and art teachers Activities or Arts Lesson Plans, which not only explore technique, art history, and aesthetics, but which are also adaptable to various ages. By connecting the practice of making art to the way it lives in the world, IPMM intends to help show adults and children alike that art & creative work is practical and viable.

3. ACCESS & INFO ON CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS

In our Living Artists Section, we’ve included a list of the diverse artist roster represented in the IPMM Permanent Print Collection, an art collection we’ve been building since 2013 and which focuses exclusively on art prints. The list of artists provided is the fuel for diving into the activities. Select an artist or artists to study, then move through the Three Phases of Learning!

4. A TREASURE TROVE OF ART RESOURCES

In addition to a full arts curriculum, we’ve also included Artist Interviews, a list of essential (and affordable) art supplies from our friends at Blick, and an art glossary. 

5. LEARNING BY DOING, MINI-MURAL ACTIVITY

We also ensure that learning is done by doing, culminating with the last phase of learning, which focuses on making a bunch of art! The Mini-Mural Activity is also a great way to harness your learning into one collective vision through collaborative creative action.
