The Original Art Teacher Planner - 

One of the Best Selling Art Teacher Planners for over 7 years!

Just download, type and print! 

We have now separated all of the various components for ease of printing!

Planners have always been a love of mine. I love looking at all the beautiful ones available out there to purchase. The only problem is they are not tailored to us 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. Plus, I need to have something to turn in for my evaluations. Sound familiar? After brainstorming ideas and testing out what my planner needed, I have decided to design one especially for Art Teachers! Planning your art program while organizing your life has never been easier!

What’s Inside?

•Monthly calendars (19 months: January 2022 thru July 2023)

•Mini-organization chart– helps you organize your ideas before each month. Contains four, fun sections to jot down your thoughts and goals.

•Reproducible monthly inspirational mini-posters – print, color and display in your classroom!

******* FILLABLE FORMS*******

TO EDIT THE FILLABLE FORMS: You must bring up the properties bar. The properties bar is a tool bar which let you change your fonts, font sizes, and colors. To bring up the properties bar on a Mac it is Command E and on a PC Control E.

• Customizable Cover - Just add your own font, save and print! 

NOW- 8 different covers to choose from! 

•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 in this planner is your choice of two weekly plan layouts (7 class and 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.

•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.

•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.

I’ve also included the 7 class and 11 class weekly plans, the individual lesson plan checklist and grades sections as stand alone PDF files as well. These also contain the fillable fields and are reader enabled for saving typed data. These individual PDF files can be used or printed as needed. Use the free Adobe Acrobat Reader for best results.

*****************REPRODUCIBLE PAGES & HANDOUTS************************

•Art Room Sign Out sheet – record who is leaving the room and at what time.

•Classroom Events – great for documenting class parties, early dismissals, programs and field trips that effect your classes.

•Vocabulary Words – these tie in with my colorful word wall. Use these sheets as a helpful planning guide for lessons in your Scope & Sequence or reproduce them for classroom use.

•Parent Contact sheet – use to document conversations, letters sent home, etc.

•Artist Statement – perfect for your artists to document their thoughts and feelings about their artwork. Just take this handout out of your planner and make additional copies, or just print from the PDF on your computer.

•Substitute Notes – helpful information for your substitute but specifically designed for the Art Specialist.

•Art Room Layout – I get asked every year to create a new room layout page for my custodians. I am tired of the little pencil scratches on paper, so we designed this to print, cut out, and arrange your classroom.

•The Elements of Art

•The Principles of Design

• Art Supply List

• Classroom Inventory log – will aid in your supply ordering and make sure you don’t run out of your important materials.

•Color Wheel handout – contains all the key terms for teaching color theory.

•National Art Standards Checklist – to help aid in your scope & 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 & Sequence – here is something that will help in planning out your school year and curriculum. The Scope & 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.

*****************PRINTING & ASSEMBLING*****************

The planner pages are 8.5x11. I suggest printing the covers on at least 28lb. paper for durability then laminate them. I use The Happy Planner Big Punch and Discs to assemble the pages for a more unique planner. 

Some inexpensive items I suggest to complete assembling your planner include a 1.5 inch, 3 ring binder with clear pocket on the front. Here you can slide in your cover. Also, I printed out some small labels for color coded index dividers with and without pockets. I have experienced through my years as an Art Teacher that budgets are small and time is valuable so I purposely chose a black & white layout to keep your printing costs down. Plus, I considered that you may want to decorate and personalize the Art Teacher Planner your way! For this purpose, only the planner covers are in color. I have spent much time and thought on this project and hope it alleviates much stress and helps keep you organized throughout your teaching year.

These PDF files were created on a Mac using Adobe Acrobat X software. Files were tested using both the free Adobe Acrobat Reader 9 and free Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. To ensure proper display of the planner and functionality of the fillable pages, I recommend using the free Acrobat Reader software. This can be downloaded from the Adobe website. Use of any other PDF software, such as Mac Preview, may result in data not being displayed correctly.

For best results, I recommend downloading, accessing and printing these files via a desktop or laptop computer. While accessing the files on an iPad worked for me, I cannot guarantee how they will behave on tablet or smartphone devices.
