Making a difference through a chosen medium – be it art making, story telling dancing, or singing, is a creator’s challenge.
As teachers we model a variety of possibilities to help students’ imaginations open to the what might be done within the assigned work. In addition to helping students imagine possibilities through multiple examples, it is also our job to help them envision the process for the work. During this week you will be collecting samples of artists’ books, materials, and tools students can use to help them with their creative challenge. What are some of the characteristics of your process in creating these samples and how will that information help your students in their creative assignments?
