About us

Doodles Academy is a national arts non-profit dedicated to ensuring all kids, regardless of their background, have access to high-quality arts curricula. We work to close the opportunity gap by providing a powerful art curriculum, either at low cost or for free, to schools and communities that may otherwise not be able to afford it.

We believe in using curriculum to create change, and thus we offer exceptional visual art curricula that provides outlets for young learners to develop and express their individuality while expanding their knowledge of the world and the diverse group of people they share it with. Within our projects we offer resources to connect literacy and social studies content, often offer video tutorials, and connect to contemporary as well as classic artworks. This increases the perceived value of art education and encourages use by schools that might not value art for art's sake.

We design our impactful lessons for educators of all backgrounds, even those who are not formally trained art teachers, to ensure that this art program is accessible even to schools without an established art program or teacher.

Our 'home-base' is in Ann Arbor, where we develop and test curricula in workshops and classes.

Description:

We are seeking 15 volunteers to assist our lead teachers in the final day of a district-wide art program.

Shifts will be throughout the summer starting June 24- August 9th

Volunteers will assist the lead teacher with students by collecting artist statements and taking pictures of the student's final art pieces. This will be a unique opportunity to connect with young artists!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to expand children's access to high-quality arts education. Our vision is that every child receives an arts education that inspires and rewards creativity, growth and problem solving.

Description

Doodles Academy provides an online curriculum that includes video examples, lesson plans, supply lists, and links to Common Core and Visual Art standards. We make it easy for educators of all types and experience levels to bring a comprehensive and open-ended curriculum to their students.

Our projects allow room for every child to tell her own story. We provide lessons that scaffold skills and ideas, challenging students to think complexly, but chunking it down so that they don't become overwhelmed. Discussion and exploration is built into each project, encouraging students to find their own creative solutions.
