Classroom Management Resources

The past school year emphasized the value of being prepared for anything. Trauma responses are playing an increasing role in the everyday behaviors of K–12 art students.

Helping these students find success within your art programs requires adjusting your instructional practices to meet their needs. You deserve access to the support you need when you need it. The resources curated here will empower you to manage whatever comes your way.

FLEX provides an extensive library of standards-aligned art curriculum materials, designed to integrate easily with most learning management systems, that can be used online, in-person, or in a hybrid setting. FLEX gives you back your time so you can focus on the most important part of your job: supporting your students.

PRO is the only on-demand professional development platform that dives into everything from art mediums to classroom management. PRO contains relevant training and essential resources, so art teachers have the personalized support they need when they need it.

Be prepared for anything with these free articles, podcasts, and resources.
