During this time when schools are closed and families are at home, FAM wanted to share some of the best free resources to create at home. The link here will take you to the website for CREATECA, an organization of art educators from across California who believe that "ALL students can reach their full potential by advancing an education model that prioritizes creativity and the arts." They looked for the most engaging collections and activities so you don't have to!
Every week, they will add a few more resources and highlight their favorites on createca.org and on social media.
Make sure to share your own with #CreateAtHome!

During the 2016/17 school year, artist and illustrator Joe Cepeda was part of the Art of the Word exhibition which featured children's book illustrators. We exhibited some of the images from his book The Big Bushy Mustache pictured below.
Joe just shared a link with FAM to some coloring pages that he is creating. They are free to download, print, and color. He's been adding a new one every week.
