:star: F.A.N.: Free Artists Network: Diverse Art Education for Creative Students

:bulletred: The Free Artists Network (FAN) is designed to modernize the field of art education, making art lessons more relevant to industry-standard skills and making content easier to access for a broader range of students worldwide. FAN aims to establish an international database of art lessons in various media modalities. These lessons will be contributed by other art educators, industry professionals, and software developers and will offer creative students industry-relevant lessons that meet their own diverse artistic interests, ability levels, and/or special needs. Teachers can upload their own multi-media art lessons to this database to share them with art students and other art educators worldwide.

:bulletpurple: Features Include, but are not limited to:
:bulletyellow: 1) Shared media galleries of student artwork with a built-in critiquing system
:bulletyellow: 2) Multi-media lesson templates and rubrics specific to arts education
:bulletyellow: 3) Classroom management services and tools for teaching art lessons online
:bulletyellow: 4) An online database of shared art lessons in various artistic fields that art teachers can instantly add to their websites
:bulletyellow: 5) The option for educators to share their arts-based lessons with students and other art educators for free or for a fee

Fascinating: is there a site like this that helps writers?

Thank you for your question. Yes, this website will include a database of lessons for writers and poets. :-)

I think the project is interesting, but I can see some problems coming up already. The design of the website, as shown in your journal isn't functional.

I think for this project to work, you'd need a professional web design agency (I think this project is way too big for a freelancer) to sort out what's important and what's not on this site and to give it a level of professionalism. This might cost a lot of money and needs to be

What worries me most is that there seems to be plans to include graphic design into the workshops. Personally, I wouldn't take any design lesson from a site that looks like that.

Thank you for your suggestions. :-) Yes, we have an experienced web developer who will be working with us.

"The website" will not be creating graphic design lessons. It just provides a database of lessons contributed by other graphic designers and art educators.

Thank you!

Wait, I may just be tired, but I have no idea how this works, could someone care to explain using a second grade vocabulary? Thanks! (Not that I'm in second grade, just tired D:)

Thank you for your question. In short, the FAN project's aim is to create a network of arts-based lessons for creative students worldwide. Professional artists and experienced teachers will be contributing design, fine art, music, film, and creative writing lessons to the database. Students can find art lessons based on their unique artistic interests and ability levels. :-) Does that help?
