Favorite Art Education Blogs

I’ve been teaching long enough to remember when visiting an art website meant only seeing few images of art from a famous dead painter and the text from a paper written in Art History 303. One time I actually displayed a Monet site on my computer just before my principal observed me, cuz you know, I was going to impress her or something. (The funny part is that she was impressed.)

Today we have some amazing teachers sharing real content on what goes on in contemporary art classrooms.  We share lesson ideas, embed YouTube videos, and advocate for quality art education.  Thanks to social media we are able to share this content and collaborate together.

    Art Teachers Hate Glitter

    Art Teachers Hate Glitter

    This is not your typical art teacher blog. This is a humor blog.
    You will not find cool lesson plans or pictures of student art work here. There are many other (better) blogs out there where you can find that sort of thing. Here you will be given a glimpse into the everyday life of an elementary art teacher.
    This blog is not safe for children.

    Kids Create Art

    Kids Create Art

    I teach ART to children. The best job ever! Developing dynamic multimedia presentations to introduce my students to the wonderfully freeing world of art is what I love doing. After my classes learn about featured artists and art history, they take what they learned and mix it with their own creativity to create masterpieces. Critical thinking and problem solving skills is a natural result of the art making process, and become skills these students will use throughout their lives no matter where their roads take them.
