On a cart right also, during hybrid learning. I am trying to do one day projects, focusing more on the process and experience rather than the product.


I've been moved onto a cart as well. It's especially difficult because I teach many grades k-12 and feel like I never have time to prep. At the end of the day I just want to go home and relax after running around all day. I live 40 minutes away so getting there early is not going to happen.
I feel like I need to write all new lesson plans for my elementary classes to keep the mess minimal for the sake of the classroom teachers, and of course my own sanity. I don't feel like a good teacher this year and it's really tearing me down.

I am actually enjoying going into the rooms and checking out how teachers have their classrooms set up. You can pick up lots of classroom management ideas this year. I don’t have a huge mess at the end of the day in my room, my art room is now a big office and place to prep. My classes are shorter so I am focusing a lot on drawing skills and visual literacy. I am staying away from technology whenever I can. We’ve had enough of screens for now. If you are thinking of how to pass the time there are lots of great books with wonderful illustrations. Reading is never a bad thing.

I've been trying to keep things simple. All of my students have their own crayons and colored pencils so that's what we've been using. There isn't a lot of extra room in most classes so that's a challenge for me too. Anyone else have any ideas?

Hi everyone,

I am running into quite similar issues in almost all of the companies I have worked so far: Most of the senior engineers just exclude me in the important technical meetings whereas I am doing an important part (technical) of a project. They either think I am not knowledgeable enough for a particular task or just that I am good at doing some non-technical/manual task. I am the only female in the technical team and how do I address this issue & to whom? Thanks in advance!

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 .

I am a middle school social studies teacher and my husband is a high school art teacher. He has been an art teacher for a very long time and he’s not super proficient with Google classroom but I am. I have been helping him with lesson online resources & creating hyper docs for the lessons. He is struggling with the students not having a lot of supplies at home and how to have them create multiple day art pieces.  he teaches at a low income area, how is everyone handling supplies to students? 


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.
