So I am putting together the Art Heroes' "Creative Arsenal" i.e., the impossible task of narrowing down the top, free online resources for aspiring creatives (periodicals, blogs, app tutorials, etc.)
Knowing that I am surely missing quite a few, I would love to know what the "go-to" sites are for you and your classes.

Greetings from Kevin McMahon - Adobe Education Leader in San Jose, CA
I want to introduce you and your students to a new educational program: art-heroes.org
In short, Art Heroes can connect your digital media students (who need to develop their portfolios for college applications and jobs) with local and global non-profit agencies (who need posters, websites, videos, etc. but cannot afford such creative services).
While your student designers, filmmakers, and web developers are welcome to join independently as "Art Hero Students", our greater hopes is that you will join as a member of the "Art Heroes Faculty" - and take advantage of Art Heroes as a way to provide your students with:
1) Real-world clients and experience.
2) Projects to enhance portfolios.
3) An opportunity to better the world with their artistic talents.
While only 2 weeks into beta, we already have members at +40 colleges and high schools. So please consider joining this fast growing program devoted to doing good with our digital talents - and feel free to forward this message to any appropriate parties you can think of (e.g., graphic design instructors, film teachers, non-profit agencies, etc). Simply put, the more teachers and students who get involved with Art Heroes, the more good we can do.
All the best,
Adobe Education Leader
