How do I get materials?
We provide detailed materials lists as well as links to our preferred supplier, so that its easy for your to get everything you need shipped to your school, or to have parents order for home use if needed.
Are materials included in the price?
No. Materials are purchased separately and we encourage you to use the materials links we provide (see previous question). We select materials that are affordable and versatile so that your students can create multiple projects with the same set of items.
How much preparation do I or my teachers need to do to implement the classes?
Our classes are propelled by the step-by-step video lessons. We recommend having a school staff-person (or parent volunteer) print the templates and organize the supplies ahead of time. At the start of each video, we showcase the necessary supplies for that lesson, which works very well in a remote learning situation. We also provide supply lists and facilitation tips to guide a seamless set up for a classroom.
Do I have to share student or parent emails?
No. Once you purchase the curriculum, you are given access to manager tools that allow you to choose unlock dates and set a password, specific to your school. Your students enter via password and their information remains private.
How are the videos delivered? How do I access them?
Upon purchase, you will be provided instant access to view, and via the "My Classes" page. You will also receive a confirmation email with a link to the curriculum and the manager tools so that you can set up a password for your school. Students will access the classes from the website where the videos are streamed directly.
Are there any assessments included in the curriculum?
In the professional art world, the most important assessment is the quality of the work itself. We focus on providing outstanding instruction so that the results obtained by students are consistently impressive—to the students themselves, to their families and to their school communities. We periodically ask for your assessment and review of our products, (and we also welcome student feedback as well). We use this information to drive continuous improvement.
Can I use this with future classes at my school?
The license holder(puchaser), can use the videos for any future class within your individual school or department. That means you only pay once, and can use the same series again for students who haven't taken the class without needing to make an additional purchase.
