Free Teacher Resources - AVAILABLE NOW!
Arts-based activities, adapted for all learning environments.
Even though this year continues to bring challenges to learning, students still deserve access to quality artistic experiences. Teacher resources are standards based, and are designed to engage students in one of the four artistic processes: Create, Perform/Present, Respond, & Connect. Additionally, most activities are equally accessible to non-arts teachers and can be folded easily into any curriculum.
Activities support foundation level students and range in style to meet various arts classroom needs. Pre-recorded artist talks, student journals, teacher guides, and fully packaged art kits are some of the many ways we look to engage with our arts education community. Get notified about the launch of our free teacher resources and stay up-to-date with the latest Outreach offerings by signing up to receive our Outreach Newsletter.
