The New Art Basics project is pioneering a new concept in curriculum which focuses not only on new and enriched academic content but also on empowering each K-12 art teacher to develop and share unique and effective approaches to that content. Finding and sharing what will work on Monday morning, in a real K-12 classroom, is the essence of the New Art Basics.
