Are you a secondary art teacher who

needs an inspiring and complete art curriculum?

I know I was, and that's why I wrote Emerging Art for my own classroom! - Michelle Kamrath

"The materials have been life-saving to me!"

"The 'Emerging Art' book and the accompanying materials have navigated me and my students through this year’s [2020-2021] online learning. I used the book, slideshows and worksheets every class. The whole package was perfect for the online learning. Thank you again for creating the Emerging Art materials!!"

  • Lots of colorful photos and illustrations. 
  • Layout is easy to see and get used to.
  •  Slideshows are very useful for daily lectures.
  •  Google search links and YouTube video links attached to slideshows are convenient and useful. 
  • Worksheets were helpful for both my students and me with instructions and examples all on one sheet. 
  • Worksheets were easy to use to help special ed students. 
  • Good amount of exercises with step-by-step instructions and at least one example. 
  • Each chapter has a touch of art history at the end. Some students really enjoyed this.

What Teachers are Saying

Best Art Instruction Book for High School

by Emily Warren, Visual Art Educator, Vermont, USA

"I LOVE IT. Thank you soooo so much. You nailed it. The scope and sequence are concise yet all-inclusive. Your book is the best art instruction book for the high school level that I have ever used. The lessons are thoughtful, encourage critical thinking, and are FUN. I thought the original was stunning. Somehow you managed to surpass the original. I look forward to using this in my traditional / hybrid / virtual classroom for years to come. Your hard work helps me relax. Thank you again!"

Takes a Load Off My Mind and Heart

by Vanessa Powell, Visual Art Educator Matanuska Susitna Borough School District, Alaska, USA

"I love the illustrations in your book... and the clarity is fantastic. Understandable and valuable for the classroom teacher. I especially like the vocabulary and the art history links. This is exactly what I need for my art classes this fall. You can’t know the amount of load it takes off of my mind and heart. I value you!!"

Your Text is My First

by Jessica J., Visual Art Educator, California, USA
