Our own place! Art teachers and artists welcome!

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?

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?

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’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 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 economical.

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. 😐

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.

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?
