Our research aims to address students who require additional support within the art classroom to provide every student with a quality education. This specific research looks into two groups of students; students who receive support through the implementation of IEP and 504 plans, and students who require extra support due to extreme poverty and homelessness. First, this research will explore the techniques, pedagogical tools, and experiences art educators use in an art class setting to best support the growth and learning of students who are placed on an individualized education plan/504 plan. It will examine how these methods differ from those used with neurotypical students in an art classroom. Additionally, this research will look into the links between Social Emotional Learning and art education, and how it can be used as a tool to foster resilience in the lives of students experiencing homelessness. This research includes both the methods of a review of the current literature out there on the subject and an analysis of narratives collected from art educators currently working in the field as an attempt to bridge gaps that exist in said research. By participating in research regarding these particular students and their support, we are working toward the goal of ensuring that all students, no matter their experiences or specific needs, will receive a quality education
