Dear Mel,
I teach K=6 in a single graded and also in a double graded school. I
made a committment to hang every piece of art work created in my room. I
feel if the students take the time to create it, then someone should be able
to enjoy it. Yes, it does take a lot of time and tape, but it is well worth
it. Our district holds a districd art show at the high school in March in
conjunction with the music preformances. Every teacher, there are 8 of us,
displays numerous pieces of student work, K=6. We always get rave reviews
from the parents and the general public. It's good for P.R. and shows that
your art program in a necessary part of the curriculum. I personally am not
in favor of awards for elementary art work, but by jr. high and high school
students are ready for that kind of competition. Linda E. Sherrill N>Y>
