Any suggestions or feelings about sending supplies home to remotes? For some units I’m not comfortable sending certain supplies. I’m looking for ideas. I’m considering building up art history and research for the remotes... perhaps more in class as well. I love art history and since I didn’t get most of my supplies I am running low because I gave to make personal kits. 😱 feeling stressed!
PLUS for some reason our students seem to have a revolving a revolving door .
One week in -2 wks out

Make things as simple as possible. I hear that revolving door too. What type of classes are you teaching?


I teach students that selected to be remote and not be in school. I teach art K5. I sent in the Google Classroom a list of supplies that the students needed, materials that would be nice if they had, and materials that they could have and use in projects but I wouldn't design a lesson around it. In my need list I wrote a pencil, eraser, Sharpie, markers, crayons, colored pencil, drawing paper (about 12x18),construction paper, glue, scissors and watercolor paint. In the it would be great to have list I had construction paper crayons, tempera paint, tempera cakes, assorted size paint brushes and tissue paper. For the last list I said your children might want to use on their own oil pastels and Model Magic. I also included an interactive list where they could click on the item and it could take them to the vendor to purchase the item if they selected to do that not that they needed to purchase from that company but to make it easy for them to acquire the materials. So far it's working out really. I also put out a survey at the beginning of school asking what materials they were expecting to have or get so that way I would know whether I could do lessons with the temperature cakes or regular tempera paints Etc.


In some of my lessons I give specific information at the beginning and then at the final step I say that they can either finishing details with whatever materials they have. And then I give them suggestions on if you have this you can do that one has been if you have tempera paint you can do object printmaking as pattern on the edge of paper as a border. Additionally I show them how they can get a 10 pack of Crayola tempera paint for $5 at Target that way they can have a variety of colors with minimal cost in 2 ounce containers. I'm actually amazed at how many parents do have the tempura paint.


Many times we get school supplies donated to us from local churches or kind parents. They just drop them off and we place them in the workroom. You could ask if any students that are still in need of supplies to contact you and perhaps you could contact a local church or group that could help out since you are running low. Other than that, it’s a great time to learn more art history BUT I do feel being hands on is still so important right now if possible.

I work in a midsize firm and we have the basic subscription to westlaw, which doesn’t include the ability to see filed briefs, motions, etc without incurring additional costs. I’m wondering if there is a service in the NJ/PA area that gives you access to previously filed motions and briefs? So if I’m drafting a summary judgment I could search the service and find a similar one. If this doesn’t exist.. I think I found the next million dollar idea lol

Need advise! My campus does a shared budget that I share with a fellow art teacher at the same campus. We also share a supplies closet. Would you split the budget and get your own supplies or just buy in bulk and share supplies? I am not sure what to do.

Twice this week a student said there was a bad word on a ruler. No, that is the name of an art store.


Hey there! I have noticed that some online communities for art teachers can get a little judgemental and hostile. Not here! Ask and share away and welcome!

What is your top favorite lesson? Mine would be one last year when I had to find the time to get into the classrooms and teach. I led a talk about the Harlem Renaissance and the kids made a jazz collage. It will be much easier with the art room back open.
