Welcome to KinderArt®, where we make teaching art, easier by providing you with art lesson plans, art ideas, craft activities and information for teaching children of ALL ages – from Preschool to High School.
We are daughter/mother Andrea and Jantje, and we are 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 more than 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.
Also, if you are looking for a little more direction in your HOME or SCHOOL art room, you will LOVE our membership club. Find out more about that at The KinderArt Club.
