WE BELIEVE IN YOU... AND THE POWER OF ART EDUCATION

Animated by our central See, Think, Do pedagogy, the IPMM Visual 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 artists from diverse backgrounds will empower them to believe they can be artists as well. Whether Frida Kahlo, Kerry James Marshall, or local Chicagoan Bria Corranda–the artists featured in this curriculum will awaken and engage your students.

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 Visual Arts Education Curriculum 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 Visual Arts Education Curriculum is an exciting tool to do just that.

AN ART CURRICULUM FOR GRADES K-12!

Intended to be a holistic resource and support tool for art teachers in all types of classrooms, the IPMM Arts Education Curriculum includes 15+ lesson plans, lesson plans for specific ages, and a local resource list that will knock your socks off.

Our curriculum is based around our three phase approach: Experience, Reflect, Make, which invites students to deeply experience and connect with the work of a more representative cross-section of deceased, living, and emerging artists, before asking them to create artwork of their own. We believe in an arts pedagogy that’s rooted in representation and connection, and believe you and your students will find it empowering and uplifting as well.

ART + EDUCATION

1. THREE PHASES OF ARTS LEARNING

The IPaintMyMind Visual 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 super diverse artists, contextualizing their work, and making art yourselves, you’ll be enriched and engaged at the same time.

2. 15+ LESSON PLANS & PROMPTS

Based around our See, Think, Do pedagogy, the curriculum takes students from visually analyzing artwork, to fostering complex art historical connections and synthesizing disparate works of art, all the way back to the process of artistic creation.

What’s more, the curriculum is divided into age ranges making honing in on the lesson plans you need a breeze.

3. ACCESS & INFO ON DIVERSE ARTISTS

The curriculum includes dozens of artists to choose from and tons of remixable lesson plans divided into grade levels.

Simply pick an artist, pick a lesson plan, then repeat! We guarantee you’ll learn about new artists that both you and your students will love.

You’ll also receive bonus local art resources specific to your city, including free art experiences, free and low-cost art resources, and self-care resources for teachers. 

4. A TREASURE TROVE OF LOCAL ART RESOURCES

In addition to a full arts curriculum, we’ve also free and cheap local art resources in 9 cities, including: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, LA, Miami, NYC, San Diego and San Francisco. Dive into the color and beauty your city has to offer!

It’s also grounded in the idea that students need exposure to artists who look like them and come from similar backgrounds. Our curriculum is diverse and representative, as we believe that quality arts education taps into both mirrors (reflection of self) and windows (understanding others).

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.
