1. Jazz up your teacher photo by using a student-popular app, or draw yourself.
2. Add a scavenger hunt element to your syllabus. Offer a prize.
3. Put photos on your supply list to help students. List potential stores and cheaper options (bamboo skewer instead of needle tool for ceramics, for example).
4. Print art store coupons off and give to your students with the supply list. This encourages them to pick up supplies before the coupon expires!
