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 always an option. Our industry is confronting an uncomfortable truth: Most art teachers weren’t trained to teach art online. This course sets the stage for you to translate your successful in-person teaching to a digital environment. 

Based on leading distance learning research, you will create a comprehensive online experience for your unique situation and students that encompasses all levels of access. You will leverage your own creative thinking skills and the collaborative nature of this course to find the best ways to reach and teach your students, develop engaging distance learning opportunities, and build community in your online classroom.
