Creating our own resources, on top of everything else required of us, is exhausting.

Hi, I’m Nicole. I’m a certified art teacher with a Masters in Art Education and 10 years of experience. My toxic teacher trait is: I create a ridiculous amount of digital resources so you don’t have to.


Well, after creating a choice-based studio and witnessing the magic of authentic kid art, I made it my mission in life to make sure all kids have the resources they need to create using their own ideas, and part of that mission includes providing teachers with (free) information via socials, and now, low-cost digital resources. 

All packaged into a cute, little virtual art studio. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? (or available à la carte here.)

With a Class Pass, you’ll have access to constantly growing resource libraries to help students stretch their imaginations, explore materials, envision ideas, develop their craft, connect to art worlds, and ultimately grow as artists.×-200-px-1366-×-600-px.svg

Not only will these resources support student autonomy and growth, but they’ll also make your life easier by freeing up your precious time, and even your budget. Oh, and did I mention these resources can be used for the worst thing ever – I mean sub plans – too?!

You might be wondering, “There are lots of art memberships today. Why yours?”

Most art memberships, even the more progressive, process-based ones, still aren’t student-centered.

Every Big Ideas resource was created based on the belief that every kid’s an artist, and deserves the resources and support to bring their wonderful ideas to life. 

So, if you’re looking to support students in your classroom with additional resources, or even completely take resource  creation off your to-do list, a Class Pass to Big Ideas Art Studio is 100% for you. Guaranteed or your money back. 

But, hurry! 15% off available now for a limited time only!

See you on this inside!

I accept purchase orders from accredited school districts. Please reach out to to request an invoice.

Absolutely! As a former public school teacher, I created Big Ideas Art Studio based on my choice-based, elementary art classroom (and the needs of my curious-independently-working students) in mind.  The Class Pass in particular was created so teachers can access all the benefits and resources of the virtual art studio I created for my online students without having to pay for access to an art teacher, because, well, you are the art teacher!

Upon purchase, you’ll have immediate access to over 75+ skill tutorials, weekly creative prompts, dozens and dozens of printable resources and more, PLUS access to newly added materials throughout the course of your year-long membership. For reference, I add new tutorials and printables monthly. Some months it’s a few items, other months it’s a dozen!

Because the membership area is growing, the price for membership is starting (shockingly) low and will increase over time. Now, is the best time to invest since you’ll be locked in at your current membership price as a founding member.

*Please note: the Class Pass DOES NOT include access to Live Zoom Classes.

A weekly challenge is an open-ended prompt meant to give kiddos a starting point for creative, independent art-making.

Weekly challenges are posted every Monday at noon EST in the Inspiration Station section of the Art Studio. They come with a brief tutorial and explanation of the challenge for the week and often include supplementary printables to assist kiddos in completing the challenge. Artists who complete the challenge are encouraged to take a picture and upload their creation to the communal art gallery!

For teachers, the Weekly Challenges come with an editable Canva template complete with printable materials for display purposes. Since time is of the essence in most elementary art classrooms and dedicating instruction time to a Weekly Challenge isn’t always feasible, the link includes access to printables and QR codes that can be simply posted in a consistent, prominent location in the classroom so students know where to look if they need ideas for artmaking! The bundle also includes Mini QR codes to pass out for interested students to take home and complete the challenge on their own time.

Many of my resources include editable Canva links, so having a Canva account is necessary for downloading and editing the templates to fit your needs. Canva is free and incredibly user-friendly.
