Art teachers are unique in so many ways. From the manner in which we design and use classroom spaces, to how we facilitate interactions with students and colleagues, we bring a unique and creative lens to the table. When it comes to something like writing curricula, we are often empowered to design our own, and for most of us, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Yet, that freedom comes with its own set of challenges. Like staring at a blank canvas, knowing where to start, can often be a struggle.
