Teaching & Learning Art Online


Our aim is to provide everything you need to manage teaching and learning at home during this coronavirus situation. We are working every day to add new resources, so come back and see what’s new.

Have questions or need help?
Join the Art Prof Discord server, we have channels for educators in middle school, high school and college where you can get support and answers from other teachers! I check the Discord daily.  Hopefully, I can save you 5 years of grief, (that I already went through here at Art Prof) there is no reason we all have to reinvent the wheel when there are already so many resources available.

Sample Faculty Lecture #1
Shifting Your Mindset to Teach Art Remotely

The most fundamental shift to remote teaching is a dramatic change that has to happen in your mindset as a teacher. Switching from a brick and mortar classroom to a remote learning is not just a physical, it’s going to be a change in your pedagogical goals and expectations. We’ll discuss how remote teaching is not just a physical change, but also one that has to happen on a more fundamental level in terms of how we approach teacher and relate to our students. We will break down how to shift your overall approach to teaching to maximize what remote teaching can accomplish.

Sample Faculty Lecture #2
Platforms, Communication, and Managing Content

With an overwhelming number of options for class communication and content available today, this workshop will explain options for how to translate your brick and mortar course in order to custom tailor a smooth, streamlined set of communication and content platforms. We’ll discuss live video vs. pre-recorded video, how to communicate effectively with students online, options for group communication, audio content vs. video content, options and formats for running group and individual critiques, and more.

Sample Faculty Lecture #3
Technology & Equipment for Remote Art Demos

We will provide detailed info on recommended equipment, (including equipment to avoid) such as webcams, mics, lighting, etc., how to troubleshoot common problems such adjusting camera angles, blocked camera views, how to stream live video, free streaming software options, and more.
