Art educators are epic multitaskers! We balance teaching with curriculum development, after-school activities, art shows, and so much more. The list feels like it goes on and on. Brain breaks are a great tool to recharge both personally and professionally. Furthermore, your students can reap the benefits of brain breaks in the classroom! Join Sarah as she shares some of her go-to brain breaks. Many come with a creative twist making them perfect for the art room setting!
