KQED Art School, part of KQED Arts, is a video-centric look at art education that features artist interviews, media art, and how-to clips. Topics include music, movies, visual arts, performance art, pop culture, digital arts, and design. Your best bet is to use the site as a source of inspiration for your students -- many of the videos could be great as a unit or project introduction. The blog's instructional videos can help inspire creativity as well as offer useful background on a variety of techniques.

Note: Kids living outside of the Bay Area may not find all of the site's offerings to be relevant, but a fair amount of what's here can transfer. Beyond the videos, assign your students articles to give them some cross-curricular reading experience. Some of these articles also feature learning-based questions at the end. You could share these with your whole class, or invite individual students to explore a topic further.
