I started an AP studio art bowl for anyone interested!


Admin is forcing all of the non-core class (Arts, Music, Tech and PE) teachers to do PD together. Any suggestions for topics/ workshops that will actually benefit this whole group?


How to cope without a partner to team teach for Fine Arts-art, music and theater arts?

I have a student who refuses to try to attempt work on projects. When I give suggestions they huff and just say that it's to hard. So I move on to the others students. I dont know to help this stu… more

It is only my 2nd year teaching High School. I have a student who is incredibly talented and I would like to help her apply for art scholarships.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?


what are some of your most important routines that you make sure to model at the beginning of the year? I am hoping to spend 4-5 weeks on classroom mgmt right off the bat


Anyone struggle with “art vs craft”? Sometimes I feel my lessons don’t carry meaningful art rigor, and I’m just hosting craft time. Any suggestions for recourses providing meaningful art lessons?


What are your must have artsy picture books for your classroom? For read alouds and also just for the bookshelf for early finishers :) I teach K-5

I usually make my own classroom posters. What are some must have posters in your room? Do you reference them often? What about some neat, storebought posters that you love? my walls are bare!


Can anyone suggest good skin tone watercolor markers? I have an autistic student who does great caricatures but we often struggle with the skin tones. Tombow is ok but very expensive.

Advice request: Any suggestions for meaningful/engaging early finisher art activities or routines? I teach Pre-K - 8th. Sketchbook time just does not engage them as I had hoped (especially 5-8).


I’m moving to a new school that has never had an art program before! I have a beautiful (old science) Room w lots of storage. What advice do you have for me?


I’ve been daydreaming of a community loom in the school or classroom. Has anyone done this or have any tips? I’m wondering if people will want to participate or take the materials and “redecorate””.


Just curious how others feel about teaching students to grid pictures as a means to draw them more accurately.
I grid my own work using photos/still life’s that I create


Does anyone love/ have fun with an 8th or 7th grade lesson they would like to share?

Does anyone teach ceramics? I'm looking to buy new wheels with the last of my budget ($2500) but I need 4-5 of them. I want to buy Brent wheels b/c they're the best but need something more eco… more

I wish art supply catalogs would allow ordering turquoise crayons, paint, pencils, etc., in bulk. It goes much more quickly than other colors, and I have to order a class pack to get more. 😐


I teach pre k to 8th


What grade level/ classes does everyone teach?

I teach high school
- studio art
- drawing and painting
And starting next year a new graphic design course. 😊


Hello! I am being asked to create a "back to school" shopping list for my art class. What would you suggest asking for from parents? I'm moving to a new school with no former art program… more

What is the most useful tool/ equipment in your art room?

High School Independent study student: Do you give them a curriculum, due dates, completed project number, projects/processes to choose from, a final show? What does an ideal student look like to you?

Yay! Someone joined my group!


We needed our own place! Anyone recommend a school grade acrylic paint ? I've had some brands turn stinky ( expire?) after a year!!!
