Gearing up for an exciting new year.

School starts in less than two weeks, which means I am busy finishing up my year overview. Well art is very personalised, I am delving deeper into creating a more personalised learning curriculum which offers students more authentic choices in art. At times I find it difficult and frustrating to come up with lessons that take full advantage of students voice but I am still learning. I am constantly asking myself what do I need to provide my students with that will allow them to take full advantage of their artistic behaviour.

This year I look forward to watching students take ownership of their learning, while they create, explore, problem solve, discover, and most importantly, take risks in art.

I hope you have enjoyed the previous posts from last year. This is my first full year of teaching Art and one of my goals is to document every art lesson that I teach in the Art Room.
