Art Room Practices & Philosophy
Two broad practices that shape each class:
1. Show Respect
2. Do the Best
The philosophies that built into each class:
Students should find themselves in the curriculum
& that curriculum should always connect itself to the real world.
Within every unit, there are choices students can indentify with
& have interest in.
Student choice should relate to artistic
& personal or social development.
Students should strive to excel
& become more productive.
Projects should periodically make 2 or more students work together
& seek common needs.
Students should have required research with a theme
& within parameteres that focus their ideas for what they are creating.
Projects should create connections with things the students are familiar with
& tie in prior knowledge into other subject matters.
Each student can be powerful in a socially positive
& a classroom appropriate way.
