Infusing technology into the visual arts classroom can help students develop creativity, critical thinking, and art skills, while also preparing them for success in a tech-rich world of work and artistic possibility.
Art captures and communicates the human experience in powerful and expressive ways. It reflects culture, history, diverse perspectives, deep feelings, and core beliefs. Art can become both a window into the perspectives of others as well as a mirror into our own experiences. When we pair the power of art with technology, we not only provide students these benefits, but we also help prepare them for a world that is increasingly infused with technology. We open up new opportunities and empower them with skills that will help them transform their love of art into a rewarding and profitable career.
To help you integrate technology into your art classroom, we have aligned our resources to the four elements of the National Core Arts Standards: creating, presenting, responding, and connecting. Browse the resources in this collection to find powerful ways to merge technology with art education. This convergence can help our students not only develop creativity, critical thinking, and art skills, but it can also prepare them for success in a tech-rich world of work and artistic possibility.
