The visual arts teach these skills. We support teachers in providing a quality art education regardless of where or what they teach.

Doodles Academy ( www.doodles-academy.org ) supports teachers in providing a high-quality, integrated, authentic , and inclusive art education that helps build students' knowledge in core subject areas. Doodles does this work in a range of ways, including through high quality curricula, lessons and teaching resources. In 2020, over 1700 educators accessed our online curriculum. We had a spreadsheet that we worked off of when we develop our curriculum. About 7 months ago we made it public, and collaborative. It has since grown, and you can view it here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1E_XVl7hM6DtgLsLnkxvvJTOEFHgeGWjOCuB0EUg_0c0/edit?usp=sharing. It's amazing, but also VERY unwieldy. We're looking for volunteers who can go through and categorize the different artists to make it easier to search. This will involve taking the artists on the spreadsheet, light research (e.g., looking at where they live) to create additional tags, and inputting it into a new database. We've gotten started here: https://www.notion.so/doodlesacademy/Diverse-Artist-List-bf7cdf516b8445e78d66b194dfda643c An awareness of the visual arts is helpful for this task. Can you help?
