Increasing independence in art-making

The art continues…I think having a larger group of students, while keeping me on my toes, invites problem-solving. I just don’t have time to spend with everyone for long periods, so they have to work undirected a fair amount. I mindfully circulate to every student every five minutes or so but my directions and redirections are quick and concise. Feedback is mostly through questioning and I encourage one student to work with another to get to a solution. We did work as a group to solve one artist’s challenge of an unwanted focus due to colour choice (yellow) and size (big enough to take emphasis away from its intended place.) Otherwise, we just marched on. Here are this week’s artworks:





Artworks, in order, by grade four, grade six, grade three and Kindergarten.
