It’s a sad fact that in schools where space or funding are an issue, arts education suffers. Fortunately, though, there’s always plenty of room for arts ed on Ovation TV’s web site, and money’s not an issue because it’s always free of charge!

From music and theater to fine art and design, Ovation’s Arts Ed Toolkit offers free, curated content for your high school classroom. Each unit is comprised of a streaming video presentation culled from the network’s high-quality library of series and documentaries, and accompanied by a downloadable lesson plan supporting National Core Arts Standards.

Featured resources available right now include The Art Of: Photography; Raiders of the Lost Art: Leonardo da Vinci, a lesson in art history built around the theft of the Mona Lisa, and a look at music and songwriting with recording artist Sheryl Crow.

And that’s really just the beginning of what’s available. Check out the Arts Ed Toolkit and see for yourself.

And to learn about other great free educational resources, be sure to bookmark this site and follow DIRECTV Goes to School on Twitter.

Note: Ovation TV is channel 274 in your DIRECTV SCHOOL CHOICE programming package.
