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.

$150 for Individual Art Teachers

As art educators are sent home, finding access to online platforms/resources to help us work successfully in a remote environment can be difficult. We can’t teach from a textbook. We can’t attend large-group PD. So how are we supposed to do our jobs? To make this situation less challenging, AOEU is providing $150 off of any annual subscription to FLEX Curriculum or PRO Learning! Claim yours using code: 150OFF.

If you’d like PRO & FLEX, add both to your cart and a $200 discount will be instantly applied!


We are also temporarily waiving the $100 application fee for AOEU’s Master of Arts in Art Education degree program.


Streamlined District PD/Curriculum Adoption

AOEU has been receiving emails and calls from school districts around the country that want to quickly adopt online K-12 art curriculum and professional development solutions in their district to support art teachers working from home. 

AOEU has taken steps to dramatically speed up the process to help school districts get PRO and FLEX into the hands of their art teachers as quickly as possible. 

To get yourself and your colleagues access to these critical online solutions, fill out or have your administrator complete this form as quickly as possible.
