Great Pinterest Resources for Art Teachers

Share this post:  
Art learning helps students develop a wide range of skills including motor skills, psycho-social skills, and language skills. Art also nurtures creativity, inventiveness and risk-taking pushing kids to think out of the box and to explore the world around them from different perspectives. 

Artful thinking is therefore a cognitive approach that makes use of art-based strategies to analyze and understand phenomena and to communicate in  expressive ways. The purpose behind learning art, I believe, is to develop a growth mindset, one that welcomes diverse perspectives and is open to new learning experiences.

Once the seeds of artful thinking are planted in kids, they keep growing and growing empowering kids with the skills necessary to not only thrive in a knowledge economy but also to connect and understand the world at a deeper level.  

Art is all about making connections, seeing behind the lines, and becoming a better version of us. To this end, I devoted an entire section to art education featuring various educational resources to help with the integration of art into teaching practice.
