Art is a tool that can help us make sense of the world around us. We've gathered together these resources to help teachers of all subjects, ages and abilities to motivate students to look at art, talk about it and make their own. If you want your students to think for themselves and develop creativity skills (problem solving, imagination, curiosity and open mindedness), the world of art is an invaluable resource.
