Finding Hope in Art

Published: Apr 16 2020

On the morning of March 11, as the coronavirus began closing schools and teachers began considering what remote learning might look like, Trina Harlow (a veteran art teacher) pondered what she could do to support her peers attempting to teach a tactile subject over Zoom. She created the Online Art Teachers (K-12) Facebook group, primarily as a service project of sorts – for art teachers/by art teachers. Now one month later, that group has almost 10,000 members from 110 countries and 130,000 posts providing art projects and resources for students learning from home.
