March is National Arts Education Month, so get in touch with your creative vibes as some of our favorite artists show you how it’s done. Make stencils and conceptual art, or practice skratching like a real DJ. No prerequisites are required to follow along with these fun and easy art-making demos. Learn more about these artists on KQED Art School.

Conceptual art is one of the trickiest forms to grasp, but it’s also one of the easiest to dive into. Make a Venn diagram of your favorite things using watercolors or any drawing tools and reflect on your priorities.
Practice the Art of the Skratch with DJs Deeandroid and Celskii
It takes practice to perfect any craft and skratching is no different. But you can sound pretty good right off the bat as long as you don’t mind ruining some of your vinyl. It’s worth it!
