Inspire your fellow art educators . . . get published in SchoolArts!

SchoolArts wants you to share your:
  • successful lessons
  • areas of concern
  • approaches to teaching art

Each issue of the volume year revolves around a theme that focuses on the human side of the studio art projects, i.e. story, play, meaning. The editor determines which issue/theme is the best fit for your article, so don’t worry about fitting a theme. It is more important to be passionate about your lesson, idea, or concept.

Submission requirements
  • Electronic manuscript (Word document or PDF). Text must not exceed 800 words.
  • Your name, position, teaching/school information address, phone number, and e-mail address MUST be included in your manuscript.
