Art-Roduce Yourself!

It’s great to be back in art action!  Middle school has focused on three of the National Core Art Standards with the “Art-Roduce Yourself” project.  In this exercise, students were asked to focus on “generating and conceptualizing artistic ideas,” “organizing and developing ideas,” and “conveying meaning through the presentation of artistic ideas and work. ” Students were asked to make choices that reflected their personalities and they will be sharing their “Art-roductions” with classmates.  That’s a lot to accomplish in one class period!  In addition to considering the art standards, they had to contend with switching media every 10 minutes.  This exercise is intended to get students’ creativity flowing…

I am St. Aloysius School's art teacher for grades K-8. It is a joy to bring art instruction to our students.
