The Art Teacher Nature Planner – Just Download and Print or Save Digitally! After creating the first Art Teacher Planner and the Full Color Art Teacher Planner, I am so excited to introduce our NEW Art Teacher Nature Planner that includes my love of Nature, Color and Art all in one planner!
Most planners out there are not tailored to art teachers. I mean, who has a schedule like ours? I just don’t want a calendar, nor do I want to pay a ton of money for a high end planner. I also need to have a digital format to submit my lessons and my evaluation forms. Sound familiar? Planning your art program while organizing your life has never been easier and inspirational!
• Monthly Calendars
• Reproducible Monthly Inspirational Mini-Posters – print, add color and display in your classroom or studio!
FILLABLE FORMS Enter and save your own text when using the forms digitally.
• Quick Reference Info Pages – enter personal info like phone numbers, email address, contacts, etc. These pages contain fillable fields which allow data to be typed and saved in the pdf file.
• Weekly Plans for both 7 Class and 11 Class Schedules – Included is your choice of two weekly plan layouts ( 7 class -Vertical and Horizontal as well as 11 class) for you to document your lessons and schedule. These pages contain fillable fields in the pdf file. If using this planner digitally, you can save time by cutting, copying and pasting data, especially if you might repeat lessons with different classes.
• Grade Sheet – I have included 32 slots for student names along with date/week fields and assignment fields. Reproduce as many sheets as you need for your own specialized art planner. If using digitally, these pages contain fillable fields for entering and saving data.
• Individual Lesson Plan Checklist – Need to create individual lesson plans? We have created a simple lesson plan form containing checklists of various items that your lesson must address including materials, assessments, modifications, elements and principles of art to name just a few. This section also has fillable fields in the pdf file.

• National Art Standards Checklist – to help aid in your scope and sequence, along with your individual lesson plans, I have included the National Art Standards Checklist for grades K thru High School. I use this simplified checklist myself and have included it in many of the lessons I have available on Teachers Pay Teachers. It is quite helpful when preparing your lessons.
• Scope and Sequence – here is something that will help in planning out your school year and curriculum. The Scope and Sequence pages for grades K thru High School are intended as worksheets for you to write down lesson ideas based on The Elements of Art, The Principles of Design, Art History, or Thematic Units. It is also a place to write down what you have already taught and what lessons are coming up next. This aids in not repeating the same subject matter, artist, culture, or art historical time period. This is a great tool to gather your topics for themes and to build projects. This is the foundation block of your art program.
Keep on Exploring and Creating!
