Our exceptional art curricula provides an outlet for young learners to develop and express their individuality while expanding their knowledge of the world and the diverse group of people they share it with. Each project contains 5 lessons, which are free to access. They all include video content, artworks and discussion strategies, and standards-aligned materials. This content is flexible enough to support and adapt to any teaching situation or environment. By offering a comprehensive tool-set it allows teachers the freedom to focus on what they do best — supporting their students. Browse the collection of free projects and curate your own set, or purchase pre-curated selections, called ‘Lesson Packs’, that are collected around a topic or theme.

“I absolutely love your website and have begun to use it in my classroom quite frequently … some of my students love the website so much that they have done some lessons on their own at home.”
- The projects are all available to steam for free once you create a login. Scroll down to the ‘All Projects’ section.
- If you want downloadable/printable lesson plans, you can purchase these directly from the project page for $5.
- If you want projects curated around a theme or topic, view the ‘Lesson Pack’ section. After purchasing, you will be automatically enrolled in your grade-level projects (accessible through the ‘my-artroom’ link at the top of the page), and the lesson plans will be in your download folder.
- A note on levels: All of our projects are open-ended and highly adaptable for different grades and skill levels, with an elementary audience in mind (1st-5th grades). We differentiate some of the technical skills and vocabulary into lower and upper levels, but the project topic and content remains largely the same between the upper and lower versions, so please choose the level that fits your students, their exposure to art, and ability levels. Use the following as a guide not a rule. Roughly: Lower Elementary= Under 3rd grade, Upper Elementary=3rd grade and older
