Check out the new and improved ArtNC! This online teacher resource features all the NCMA resources you know and love, PLUS a host of innovations. You’ll find a larger selection of works of art, bigger and better images, and more information. You’ll also discover over 40 art-integrated lessons plans, all aligned to the new Common Core and North Carolina Essential Standards. All of these classroom resources are searchable by concepts you teach in the classroom. (Do Environment, Place, Identity, Communication ring a bell?) The unique Concept Explorer tool will help you map relationships between those same concepts and NCMA works of art. Use your concept maps as lesson plans, or share them with colleagues and other ArtNC users. Best of all, store and organize your favorite images, lessons, programs, and concept maps in your own portfolio. Make ArtNC your hub for creative lesson planning.
