ArtLink Online

ArtLink Online is our new platform designed for enrolled Artlink teachers to implement the program – digitally!

We have broken out the curriculum into sections from lessons to forms and more. In addition, we created simple brief tutorials for many of the lessons and for this year’s theme, to be used by our teachers and their students.

We look forward to adapting and expanding this online platform based on feedback we receive from our teachers around the world.


A forum for our ArtLink teachers worldwide to meet and share their ideas and experiences and to learn from one another over Zoom calls.
To date, the CC team has facilitated 4 calls on topics such as the Covid-19 pandemic, its impact on our teacher’s communities and schools, what it means to teach global citizenship and social justice.
