Including diverse artists is crucial for students of all races, genders and ethnicities. As an art teacher I feel it is important that young artists see themselves reflected back as professional creators, which is why my art history classes include artists beyond the European tradition of art. Studying a range of art movements and artists around the world from a decolonized perspective leads to a much richer experience as it exposes students to artists who work in a variety of mediums and...
My hope is that every child feels inspired, empowered and confident when they leave my classroom. By learning about these diverse and interesting artists, learners can explore different art styles and mediums, which will help them to find their own strengths and motivate them to learn more - both about themselves, and of the world around them.
I have been teaching modern art history classes on Outschool since 2018 and host local workshops in my homeschooling community as well. As a professional artist and textile designer I have attended local and online professional development training seminars on cultural representation, appropriation and non-biased instruction in the art world, including some specifically on Afrofuturism and Native American art history. I am passionate about helping young ones to see and appreciate the diverse world around them as they draw inspiration from the beauty of our global community.
Art supplies to have on hand include mixed media/watercolor paper, pencil and eraser, ruler, markers, colored pencils, watercolor and tempera paints, scissors, glue and crayons and/or oil pastels. Any other specific materials will be optional and posted in the classroom in advance in case you'd like to experiment with a more advanced medium.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

While discussing the lives and history of many of these modern artists, some facts may arise that could be troubling or disturbing to a sensitive learner. Some examples might be: details of traumatic life experiences; discussions about cultural appropriation, racism and feminism, and/or the tragic deaths of particular artists. These details are handled in an age-appropriate manner and some are not included in the lesson; however, other learners in class may be aware of these details and might bring them up in class, so please consider this prior to enrolling and contact me with any questions. Content Warning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are warned that this article contains the names, images, artworks and stories who have died.
I will be using my own personal slides, materials and personal photos & videos from museums (with permission). At times I may recommend free additional resources from Crystal Bridges Museum of America Art, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and other museums or exhibits around the world.
