Finding and managing materials is one of the most difficult facets of teaching art in a regular brick-and-mortar classroom. Now that teachers have transitioned from teaching in a classroom to teaching online, finding materials just got more difficult -- there aren’t any!
As we continue our series on addressing the challenges brick-and-mortar art teachers face in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we shift our focus to technical concerns. The issues addressed here were submitted by art teachers, but many of the solutions apply to all teachers who are new to online education.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic, children’s lives have changed dramatically. Classes and sporting activities are canceled, events are postponed, and they must be socially distant from friends. These challenging circumstances may create additional stress for children. Consider art and mindfulness to help your child manage stress.
As the Covid-19 quarantine continues, you’re likely searching for fun activities to keep your children occupied. Try creating art. If your art supplies are limited and you’re stuck at home, don’t worry. Art is possible even with just a pencil and paper. Here are some fun artistic activities you can try with your children during the next few weeks.
