Art Projects and Lesson Ideas that Save Time: Inside Out Art Teacher

Art projects and lesson ideas that save time created by Lauren at Inside Out Art Teacher

Hi fellow art enthusiasts, I’m Lauren, and this is my story—a tale of two decades in the art classroom, the birth of Inside Out Art Teacher, and why I create art projects and lesson ideas that save time.

YOUR TIME IN AND OUT OF THE ART CLASSROOM IS PRECIOUS, LET’S MAKE EVERY MOMENT COUNT WITH READY-TO-GO ART PROJECTS AND LESSON PLANS

Teaching art is a passion, but let’s face it, the demands can be overwhelming. That’s where Inside Out Art Teacher steps in – your go-to source for quick, effective, and downright magical teaching resources.

THE BEGINNING OF A PASSIONATE ART LESSON JOURNEY

I am Lauren and I’ve been teaching high school art for 25 years. I truly believe that we perform our best and shine the most when we feel understood, valued, and as though we are able to give the people around us the best versions of ourselves. 

WHEN WE FEEL GOOD ON THE INSIDE, IT IS REFLECTED ON THE OUTSIDE.

Teaching art for 25 years has been an odyssey of creativity, resilience, and, of course, the joy of seeing young minds express themselves through art. The early years were a dream—small classes, students diving deep into their creativity, and a sense of profound connection.

CHANGES AND CHALLENGES TEACHING ART

As the years went by, the landscape of education shifted. My school grew, graduation requirements changed, and intricate academic programs altered the course schedule. Suddenly, I found myself with larger classes, combined levels, and limited time for the individual attention that once defined my teaching style.

THE MOMENT OF REALIZATION: I NEEDED HELP

Teaching high school art can be frustrating

One day, the realization hit—I missed those deep connections. I missed being able to give each student the attention they deserved. The constraints of time were limiting the magic I wanted to create in my classroom.

THE SEARCH FOR SOLUTIONS TO ART CLASSROOM FRUSTRATIONS

I began to search for ways to bridge the gap. I wanted to find a way to maintain that personal touch despite the challenges. The struggles were real:

  1. The Time-Consuming Repeats

Students missing classes for various reasons led to constant repetition of project steps.

  1. The Unavailable Art Teacher

Demonstrating for one level meant being unavailable for others.

  1. The Eternal Material Hunt

No matter how organized, materials would mysteriously vanish, causing chaos.

  1. The Lengthy Art Demos

Demonstrations took up precious time that could be spent on actual creating.

EPIPHANY: THE NOT STRESSED ART TEACHER SOLUTION WITHIN

I couldn’t change the structure of my classes, but I could change how I managed them.

Then came the ‘aha’ moment—I needed to look within myself for the solutions. The answer wasn’t outside; it was inside. I couldn’t change the structure of my classes, but I could change how I managed them.

INSIDE OUT ART LESSONS WERE BORN

I started creating art projects and resources that could be used over and over year after year and accessed by my students digitally.  HAVING READY-TO-GO ART PROJECT RESOURCES WAS AN ART TEACHING GAME CHANGER.

Let’s cut to the chase. Here’s how my resources can be your teaching superhero:
