About us

For Educators

If you teach art for a living, we love you.

Helping a new generation to understand and appreciate the arts is a noble calling, and consistent with the mission of The Art Story Foundation. Educators serving everyone from young children to doctoral students and adult education classes use our on-line resource to support a wide range of teaching activities involving both art history and creative subjects.

Educators not only take advantage of our quality on-line resources, but they help make our site better. Every page has a "report error" link at the bottom, and educators are often the first to notice errors or omissions, and to provide feedback that allows us to make corrections and improve our content.

We currently offer a number of opportunities to help educators make the most of The Art Story Foundation website:

Ad-free access

The Art Story is an educational resource that is available free of charge to anyone via our website, theartstory.org. It is a powerful tool that can be used by teachers and professors for both research and as a teaching tool for their students.

Our only source of income is a modest amount of advertising on our website. But we do realize that advertising can be distracting when the website is used as part of an educational curriculum, and it can sometimes hinder the experience of students. We are continually looking for the right balance between user experience and being able to financially support our mission.

For educators who would like ad-free access to the website for themselves and their students, we are now offering special educational subscriptions at a modest charge, to compensate for the loss of advertising revenue.

On-line syllabus

We can put up a special private page tailored to your class, that includes, ad-free access to relevant Art Story content, your own class material, and external links to third party sites.

These pages are individually designed to meet the specific needs of your class, and are available to you and your students through a protected log-in. Your page(s) will include all digital media your class needs in one place.

Custom options

We are also exploring other ways we can be helpful to educators. If you have any ideas you would like us to consider, please let us know.

Please contact us if you would like more information on any of these options by emailing info@theartstory.org.
