Renee Goularte Creating Art With Kids
“Because I am no longer in the classroom I have limited contact with teachers for offering support, but I do answer all questions very quickly. My email address is present in all my resources with an invitation for people to email me with any questions. I also have a Facebook group where I post helpful ideas for activities and doing art at home. My art lessons are really easy to follow; it is one comment from “non art” teachers that I hear over and over, so I know they would be easy for parents to use. Also, none of them use any unusual materials, so the lessons are very accessible.”
Inside Out ART
I create complete middle and high school art resources so that they can be shared with students through Google Classroom and other digital platforms. I’ve been creating more projects that will help students relax, reflect, and feel a sense of pride with limited materials in a time of uncertainty.
