Remote Learning

In this unprecedented time, we need each other more than ever. Many educators have been tasked with creating online learning, while others are trying to get meaningful activities to students without digital access.

We are in the same situation as you and want to create opportunities to ban together and learn!

As you plan for the 20-21 school year, we encourage art teachers to reference the ISBE guidelines for working with shared materials in an art classroom. Ideally, schools would be able to:
  • Provide individual materials
  • Implement consistent cleaning practices and provide additional time and resources for the cleaning of shared materials
  • Adjust classroom spaces for recommended social distancing.
The IAEA is currently working with other arts groups and school districts to provide more comprehensive guidance.
