Founded by Kathleen McGiveron (Ms Artastic), my mission is to provide you with prepared art lessons, resources, and activities that will allow you to free up your time and live your life, whether that means traveling, pursuing your hobbies, or spending time with your family. You should be able to be an instructor or teacher and be able to have the time to LIVE life. With this membership, you will receive teaching ideas, inspiration, and guidance to help you navigate and problem-solve in your classroom or studio. This membership will give you the freedom to create art with kids, live your life, and will help you engage your students with art lessons.
ABOUT THE MEMBERSHIP:
The Artastic Collective Membership offers a community, virtual Q+A’s and meet-ups, and art lessons that I’ve created. This membership is a wonderful option for art teachers teaching Primary to Middle School Art. Get my art lessons (which include lesson plans, student handouts, assessment, full step-by-steps and more) to save you time and give you freedom, and to have fun, creative art projects to make with your students in your classroom. The AC Membership is a monthly membership, making it affordable and convenient with new art lessons coming each month! You got this art teacher!

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE INSIDE THE MEMBERSHIP?
Once you've joined, you will be able to see a Library that has different sections or categories. In there is the "Community" which is the forums where you can talk to me and the other members in different topics. I have some categories that give you new content (full bundles or art units) each month such as my "Elements of Art & Principles of Design", "Artists & Art History", and "Themes" categories. Other categories have content available all the time, such as my "Holidays & Seasonal", "Sketchbooks", and "Ceramics & Sculpture" category. In addition to this, I am always creating and adding new resources! The membership is ever-growing and evolving. There are lots of resources for you to choose from, to provide you with years of fully planned art lessons.
I also have created a course inside the membership that will give you challenges to complete each month. You will build your passport when you complete your challenges each month, and finally you will earn a prize at the end of each year! These takes will help you grow, evolve, prepare, and focus your art teaching practice.
In addition to this, I host monthly Virtual Q+A meetings! I'll also host virtual meet-ups and art making events!

ABOUT THE ART RESOURCES:
I create high quality, complete art resources. All my resources are either in PDF or Video format (with the exception of my Digital & Print resources that can be offered to students on Google Slides in addition to the PDF). When you are a member, you can expect to see the art lessons as downloadable PDFs. When you open them, you can expect a Lesson Plan, assessment, student handouts such as a step-by-step guide, and a full Visual & Steps tutorial for you to use or to show to students to help create the art project. I show ALL the steps with my resources! Once you've downloaded the lesson, you can print off what you want, or project the resource in your classroom and scroll through the steps and show your students (or do the demonstration yourself!).
You can preview my art resources in my TeachersPayTeachers store where you can see what they look like. The resources in my store that are also found in my AC Membership are labeled in the product description. There are FREE examples in my TpT store and you can download them to see what my style is like, or purchase an art lesson to see a more accurate example before you make your decision.
