WELCOME!

Andrea Mulder-SlaterWelcome to KinderArt®, where we make teaching art, easier by providing you with FREE art lesson plans, art ideas, craft activities and information for teaching children of ALL ages – from Preschool to High School. I’m Andrea and I am so glad you stopped by!

KinderArt® is for classroom teachers, art educators, homeschoolers, after-school program directors, future teachers, college students, artists and parents who want to enrich their children’s artistic lives at home. KinderArt® is for YOU!  As a result, KinderArt.com is a very large, exciting (and potentially confusing) place.

We’ve been at this since 1997 (that’s 20 years!), so we have a website which is packed with things to do, see and discover. And, it’s all FREE!

This page is your gateway to the many art lesson plans available on KinderArt®. Lessons are categorized by technique or discipline. Each section (ie: Painting) features a list of lesson plans organized alphabetically. You will also see recommended age/grade levels. Choose from painting, printmaking, drawing, crafts, art history, sculpture and more.
