Welcome to Art Without Excuses, a collection of materials curated by an art educator, for classroom teachers and student, in any subject, at any level, anywhere. 

Students love being creative, whether it is through creating videos, taking their own photography, adding their own drawings and more! These resources will help you incorporate art in your room. Many incorporate technology, but could also be completed on paper.
