Art Education and the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Art educators across the world are currently coping with the larger implications of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its community-wide spread in their own school districts. AOEU is here to help, and we will get through this together. This too shall pass.


Art teachers everywhere are asking the same questions:

How do I prepare for teaching online classes? What resources should I send my students? What PD makes the most sense when I’m at home? 

AOEU’s mission is to “grow amazing art teachers… at every stage of their career.” Needless to say, this is a particularly difficult stage of every art teacher’s career. As such, AOEU is providing this page as a central hub for art educators to answer these questions and curate relevant ideas and opportunities to help you optimize your resources during this time.

We are thrilled to announce AOEU's newest course: Teaching K-12 Art Online!

Art teachers thrive in a traditional classroom environment where students gather for demonstrations and create art together, but the world is changing and in-person teaching isn’t an option right now.
This course sets the stage for art teachers to translate their successful in-person teaching to a digital environment.
In this course, you will:

  • Evaluate strategies, benefits, and technology options for teaching art online.
  • Design a series of activities using online teaching best practices.
  • Cultivate a future plan for teaching art curriculum remotely.

The course is open NOW, and you can enroll today to be in the first cohort!
