      Quality lessons ready to use!

      It used to take forever to find art lessons that connected to the classroom curriculum that were age appropriate. My attempts to “age up” or “age down” projects to the right age level were labors of love and not always successful. Thanks to Art Projects for Kids, I now have quality lessons ready to use, all in one place!

      I love the step-by-step directions!

      I used to struggle to find art lessons. With Art Projects for Kids, I love that the lessons are not complicated to understand or implement because I don’t have time to study the lessons. I love the minimal prep, just pull it up on my smartboard and follow along with your directions.

      Meaningful and easy to do!

      My biggest challenge was finding readily available ideas using common art supplies. I love that your art work is so easy to use and at my fingertips when I need them.

      Fun, Meaningful Art Activities with 90% Less Planning Time


      The only options most teachers have for how to find art lessons is by spending hours weeding through the millions of ideas that come up on Google and Pinterest. Or to scour Teachers Pay Teachers for expensive supplements to your local curriculum. Or to try to force-fit the overwhelming school art program that requires all kinds of fancy materials (all in your “free” time, right?).

      But even after giving up most of Sunday afternoon searching for ideas, all you turn up is one or two puny lesson plans with instructions that are about as easy to follow as IRS Form 13909. You need a faster way to find fun art projects with user-friendly directions that will engage your kids. But…how? Enter: Art Projects for Kids.

      ART PROJECTS FOR KIDS CREATOR, KATHY BARBRO

      Prep Your Art Lesson Plans, Effortlessly

      The Art Projects for Kids step-by-step method of elementary art instruction breaks the often anxiety-inducing subject of art down into a simple, fun process (for students AND teachers) that boosts your students’ confidence and allows them to create with joy.

      Each of your kids can set their own pace to create artwork they can be proud of. And you can feel empowered to instill your kids with the delight of creativity (even if you tend to be a left-brained, “in the box” thinker yourself). 

      But after 20 years in the classroom as an art teacher, I also know what it’s like to give up every Sunday afternoon (and most evenings) to plan the week’s lessons. You shouldn’t have to give up all your free time to bring your students meaningful art instruction. That’s why at Art Projects for Kids, you’ll find a variety of easy, step-by-step lessons your kids will love all in one place. The result is an instant extra 90 minutes minutes back in your weekend — just by signing up for our emails (and it’s free!).

        Relax, Knowing No-Prep Art Lessons Are en Route to Your Inbox


        No more feeling guilty for not having the bandwidth to thoughtfully integrate more art projects into your lessons. No more cringing at not coming up with more “creative” ideas and projects to put on your bulletin boards. No more doubting your ability to teach art. No more feeling helpless when your kids are too afraid to create.

        Instead, enjoy a classroom brimming with perseverance and playfulness. Wake up looking forward to walking into your classroom armed with your easy lesson plans and even videos you can play for your class. Smile as you watch your creative kids discover that, yes, they CAN have fun doing art. Feel truly prepared (maybe for the first time ever). Treat yourself to a relaxing Sunday with your feet up. Maybe even reading a book that didn’t come out of the kids section of the library. And know that your (free) email membership to Art Projects for Kids is powering all of this, like your magical teaching fairy godmother. And even when you rest? It won’t. 

          I love the step-by-step directions!

          My biggest challenge in teaching art was finding accessible and doable projects for my elementary students. With Art Projects for Kids, I love that I get a legitimate art educator’s perspective. The lessons make it easy to differentiate for “exceptional” learners without oversimplifying and the projects are interesting for my kids to do.

          Really boosts their drawing confidence!

          I used to spend hours finding projects my kids could enjoy and successfully complete. Art Projects for Kids is the perfect go to when I need a prompt in a hurry. The downloads have given my students actual art to learn, and they’ve become more confident in their abilities with the step-by-step directions.

          Nice art work that is kid friendly!

          Breaking down art projects into easy to follow steps used to take forever, and the directions on other sites were not as user-friendly for my students. I love that Art Projects for Kids provides popular characters and animals that students like with step-by-step tutorials that allow me to teach my students independent leisure skills.
