A message from Winged Canvas founder Fei Lu.
Each art course contains a package of several modules -- and each one is an engaging art project! This is a done-for-you teaching system designed to give teachers back their time and energy to enjoy the creative experience with their students. It will empower every teacher — even those with zero art experience — to facilitate effective and engaging art lessons in the classroom or online!
Access a curated library of video lessons and teaching templates for educators to teach visual arts according to school curriculum standards. Enjoy the flexibility of bite-sized lessons taught step by step by professional art educators and award-winning artists!
All Winged Canvas programs are designed to exceed Ontario Arts Curriculum standards, supplemented with teaching techniques and design thinking to nurture student success, confidence, and self-expression. Our video lessons are bite-sized and guided step by step from professional artists to accommodate shorter class periods and online learning.
At Winged Canvas, all of our art programs are founded on our four pillars of learning.
Explore - Identify, discuss, and interpret what was observed.
Recreate - Instructor demonstrates the technique or creative process (step by step).
Design - Students create within the theme, using the new concept or skill learned.
All courses use our unique N.E.R.D. teaching methodology to teach the creative process with proven results — leading to more confidence, well-being and creative expression. Lessons teach art concepts including the essential elements of art and principles of design, as well as techniques such as sketching, composition, blending, shading, colour theory, and digital art.
Winged Canvas has been proudly serving teachers in our community since 2014. We're excited for this new chapter of growth and possibility. See what past teachers have said about their experience with us!
📌 FACILITATE professional quality art lessons — even if you have no art experience!
📌 REDUCE your art lesson planning time to zero — and earn way better results.
📌 INSPIRE & SUPPORT each student’s individual creative journey instead of trying to plan lessons that cater to the class average.

You see all of these amazing art projects ideas on Pinterest...but you don’t feel confident in your drawing skills to get the same results.
You work hard to stretch a shoestring budget, but still see lots of art supplies go to waste.
As educators, we want to reward our students with the best creative experience in art class. It’s one of the only times when students can use their imaginations to express themselves freely.
A great art education leads to children who are more aware, more cultured, and more confident, leading to overall better well-being and mental health!
The curriculum guidelines have limited examples that expect educators to explain art concepts to kids without any of the techniques to bring their ideas to life! How do you teach the elements of art and principles of design to kids when you have limited art skills and training?
As class sizes continue to grow, teachers continue to juggle different needs in the classroom. Some students will finish WAY sooner than others and get bored, while others are frustrated and still struggling to catch up.
Some of your students love art and are thirsty for a challenge, while others complain that it’s too hard. Kids with special needs require even more hands-on support and attention.
You’re trying to balance everything and discipline, and teach new art techniques, until it becomes an exhausting juggling act. The period ends and your students RUSH out, leaving materials everywhere, not washing their brushes properly and leaving a giant mess for you to clean up.
“I can barely even draw a stick figure—how does the school expect ME to teach art?”
“I find myself using the same lesson plans over and over again...I'm even getting bored of them.”
“My students love to doodle and draw anime—but they show little interest and put in zero effort in the art projects that I assign.”
Instead of struggling to teach art with limited training, you can facilitate world-class art lessons designed by experts — that your students will love!
This membership provides a done-for-you art teaching system that will give teachers back their time and energy to enjoy the creative experience with their students. It will empower every teacher — even those with zero art experience — to facilitate effective and engaging art lessons in the classroom or online!
Become a better educator by LEARNING new art techniques and concepts WITH your students instead of assigning them projects that they dread.
Pick and choose modules that integrate art with other school subjects and themes to get additional marks in science, language arts, social studies and even math!
Our lessons are planned and executed by professional artists who are passionate educators, then curated and edited into bite-sized modules with learning supports.
