Creativity Reboot for the Art Teacher's Classroom

Course 5225

Spark your inspiration and get creative in this one-of-a kind course, designed by an art educator, for PreK-12th grade visual art teachers!

Creativity is an essential component of a vibrant art classroom, and it starts with the teacher. Guided by the course text, Keep Going: 10 Ways to Stay Creative in Good Times and Bad, you’ll reconnect with your creative process and foster an environment that encourages student creativity, too.

You’ll develop activities that support students’ social-emotional skills and identity, engage with “artivism,” and build connections through collaborative and local art. Because traditional grading practices can stifle creativity, you’ll learn how to design meaningful assessments that promote reflection and ongoing growth. “Creativity Pauses” sprinkled throughout nurture your imagination along the way.

After completing this course, you’ll be energized to incorporate new ideas for a creativity reboot in your classroom!
