The best way to engage with the Arts at home is to make art every day! It doesn't have to be complicated or elaborate - just do something artistic each day.
Here is a way to get started - the 30 Days of Art challenge.

30 Days of Art

How to Take the 30 Days of Art Challenge at Home

1. Parents, get the Teachers’ Kit - download

2. Print out the poster, or display it on your computer

3. Print out the student log sheet.

4. Make Art (the most important step!)

5. Use stickers or markers to fill in the bubbles

6. Brainstorm other challenges and add them to your poster

7. Make more art! (so important that we've included it twice)
