Shannah Burton, an elementary school art teacher from St. Louis, Missouri, gives open-ended creative challenges to her students once a week. The digital series is called Art with Ohren, named after her adorable dog. She began the series by explaining to students, "I have always wanted to bring my dog to school with me.... And now I can!"
