My Favorite Simple Visuals for the Art Room

If you have limited wall space in your art room,  you must be selective with types of posters that are worthy of your precious wall real estate. This is why I’ve always had a set or two of Crystal Art Display Cards hanging in my art room. They are small in size, and hit on almost every vocabulary word, art history period (I used them as my art room timeline) and media you can think of. Here is a short video explaining how I use them in my art room.

Magazine articles and podcasts are opinions of professional education contributors and do not necessarily represent the position of the Art of Education University (AOEU) or its academic offerings. Contributors use terms in the way they are most often talked about in the scope of their educational experiences.
