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.

Check out this amazing list of art education blogs recommended by art teachers around the world.  This list is interactive! Please join in and add your favorite art ed blog and help sort the list by ranking up your favorites.

  • This blog is a conversation of how to teach our mini's. Let's share great ideas and creative attitude. We can make this big world a little smaller.

  • Art Lessons for Kids

  • 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.
