Arts EducationWe make teaching fun & easy.

Get Started

You're an arts educator. . .

You walk into class to find no curriculum and a slim budget. Expectations are high but choices are gray, cloudy, and confusing. You’re expected to be it all and do it all. It’s exhausting. You’re tempted to quit, but don’t. We can give you your color back. We can give you the tools you need to make teaching the arts fun and easy.

Hey, I'm Joanna


I’m creating a marketplace for arts educators who are on a mission to turn our world upside down.

In case we haven’t met… I’m a teacher, non-profit founder, proud mama of 2 extraordinary kids, wife to my Black Dude, healthy Type 1 Diabetic, undercover gringa (if you don’t know what that means, just ask :), and fitness fan.

Even though I was a Creative Writing major, I can’t find the words to tell you how thrilled I am that you’re here.

As an arts educator, you have the most powerful medium to help students discover their true identity and make choices of integrity. You can give them hope and a future.

If you’re on a mission to do that, you’re in the right place. Welcome!
