So what else has been going on...My new art teacher partner in crime this year and I have really been focusing on getting kids to "build a new box" - well, not really building a new box - but designing and solving their own art & design problems. This blog post contains just a sampling of some choice-based student projects from 2nd quarter. We are so proud of our students who are really delving into skills and media they don't know and honing them to create amazing wow projects. It's about finding an interest and digging a little deeper to see what you can learn, understand, do, and create. We have everything going on - installations, animations, sewing, and more!
How do you encourage problem solving and independent learning?
