It’s been a while since I posted work coming out of the self-directed classes with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Only one of these pieces was based on a demonstration I presented as an option (Found object face, 7th from the top). Sometimes I worry that the quality of work or themes explored might suffer in a self-directed setting, that students won’t challenge themselves or think as creatively without more teacher direction. After searching through work for this post I feel reassured that this is not the case. Cause check out this awesome stuff! More to come soon around how I assess a self directed art class.
Mixed media transportation projects. We printed the clouds with bubble wrap and the street with toy cars. Students drew imaginary or realistic forms of transportation and cut them out and glued them to their prints.
This was a lesson that I did a demo for during their choice art time, some students participated and some students continued their own choice art projects.
