Rainbow colored logo for the Prang Art Teacher of the Year.

⁠Prang, the maker of high-quality student art materials for more than 100 years, is proud to sponsor the PRANG® Art Teacher of the Year program. This national program will recognize 10 art teachers that have made significant contributions in the lives of their students by advancing art education and inspiring self-expression through art.

Anyone can make a nomination for an art teacher currently teaching in the United States who they feel has made a noteworthy impact on the lives of their students. ⁠The deadline to submit a nomination is July 31, 2022.

“Teachers are the unsung heroes of every school in the country. We’ve honored 32 teachers through Prang Art Teacher of the Month and are ramping up the program to shine a light on art teachers everywhere and the impact they make on students,” said Steve Boyea, EVP Sales and Marketing for Dixon Ticonderoga Company, the makers of Prang. 

⁠Ten teachers will be selected by a committee comprised a diverse group of art teachers, artists, executives, and thought leaders in art education, including Americans for the Arts President and CEO Nolen V. Bivens. The 10 selected teachers will be honored at a virtual event in September and receive a year’s supply of art products for their art room with a retail value of $5,000.
