Art instruction has become a challenge with the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. In this post, I will provide you with the Distance Learning Art Resources and Activities that I have created for you to use for instructing your students. From Distance Learning Art projects that can be used with any mediums or materials to my Full FREE Art Lessons on my YouTube Channel that I’ve created for you, my goal is to alleviate the stress of planning and creating for you and to provide your students with quality art ideas and at-home lessons.
This blog post will be updated and added to as I continue to create new resources for you so please check back each week for updates.
As well, I will provide links to my free resources that I have created and other resources I created in the past that could be used as take-home workbooks for students to work on independently for art at home.

Distance Learning Art Project Ideas
These are resources I created specifically with this crisis in mind. They can be created with any mediums and materials and have simple instructions both written and visually to allow students to explore art and experiment at home. This can also be used for Art Subs or put in Sub Tubs for Elementary Teachers, or as a take-home art resource during emergency situations like the Coronavirus (COVID-19) closures, or if you can’t print it off, they can be created on whatever paper a student has available to them and they can view the directions digitally.
Grid Drawing Distance Learning Art Activities:
WHAT IS GRID DRAWING?
Grid drawing is a low-tech way to reproduce or enlarge an image. Grid drawing can provide an artist with lots of practice in drawing and observational skills. Grid drawing can be an intensive method of drawing or painting depending on how large you reproduce your image. Grid drawing means the artist will draw grid lines over an image. They will then draw a grid of equal ratio over their work surface. Then the artist draws the image onto the work surface, copying the details of one square at a time until the image has been completely transferred. Once transferred, grid lines are erased and the image can be filled in with a medium of choice (such as pencil, charcoal, paint, wax crayon, or pencil crayon).
This can also be used for Art Subs or put in Sub Tubs for Elementary Teachers, or as a take-home art resource during emergency situations like the Coronavirus (COVID-19) closures, or if you can’t print it off, they can be created on whatever paper a student has available to them and they can view the directions digitally.
Ms Artastic YouTube Channel
I have been creating a video each week for kids to create art with. I already have a lot of drawing tutorials on my Channel, but since the crisis has started, I have changed to offering FULL Art Lesson for FREE that will focus on the Elements of Art and Principles of Design to allow curricular content to be taught by an art teacher in your student’s homes.
Please support my channel by subscribing my channel to help me get to 100,000 subscribers by the end of 2020! I would greatly appreciate you subscribing as it will help me continue to create these video’s for y’all!
Art Resources that can be used as “Take Home” Distance Learning Materials:
I love you all Artastic Nation. Please email me at msartastic (at) gmail.com if you have any specifics of what you’d like to see. Know that I’m still making more Distance Learning Art Resources and so it is a good idea to check back each week as I add more resources to this post.
