Choice Based Art Education: This year the art room has
been transformed into an art studio. Students get to work from a variety
of art centers. Studio centers, similar to classroom learning centers,
provide access to multiple choices in the art classroom. Students choose
their subject matter and media used when creating art. Emphasis is placed
on artistic process with three essential goals: student independence, acquisition
of artistic behavior, and the generation of ideas. Instruction varies
from whole and small group demonstrations to individual and peer
coaching. I have enjoyed this adventure and love watching the students
create. I look forward to how our art studio evolves over the next
The students are invested in their projects. They
enjoy having more opportunities and choices. They like how all the
projects are different and they feel they are able to be more creative.
And they love sharing and talking about their creations.
