First Day of Class

Back in August on the first day of class we watch a short video on the importance of art. Even thought some of the themes were to much for the students to understand they were still captivated by the images of students creating. The Radiohead sound track doesn't hurt either. Then the artists had to finish a simple sentence, When I make art I feel.....
We talked about how art is different from math and language arts, and how it is the same. The artists took time to consider why they feel the way the do in art class. Then the artists finished the sentence on an index card and stuck it on the bulletin board.

The artists really surprised me with their answers. We used these ideas about ourselves to really get the most out of their time in the Art Studio
