About Ms Arastic

Meet Kathleen

(Ms Artastic)


I am Kathleen McGiveron & I am Ms Artastic.
Ever since I could remember, I loved Art. Whether it was obsessively drawing cartoons with books or T.V. as a kid or creating with clay in my High School Ceramics classes, I LOVED Art.

And there was once a time I was so exhausted and overwhelmed that I almost walked away from it all.

About Me…

I am Kathleen McGiveron and I am both the founder and creator of all things Ms Artastic. I am a one woman show that creates everything from the art lessons and resources, my blog, the Artastic Collective which is my Art Teacher Curriculum membership site where you receive bundles of fully prepped art lessons each month that you can use immediately in your classroom. I also have my resources available in my TeachersPayTeachers store, Ms Artastic. I host a podcast called “Ms Artastic” and I produce the Ms Artastic YouTube channel which produces new episodes each week. I am dedicated to YOU, Artastic Nation. I want to ensure that I can help you be productive, efficient, and fully planned, which will hopefully alleviate some of that art teaching stress as I help you plan your year.
