Lesson Plans

Independent Project

Help. My students want to do an "independent" project....they have been
wonderful all year....drawing from observation, doing concentrated
self-portraits, listening to my art history lectures, and recently I thought
I would loosen them up with a little oil pastel idea of
a loose assignment was way too NOT loose to them. They deserve a reward....I
would love to have them invent their own lesson but I am not sure how to do
this. (First year teacher here)

How can I let them dream up their own project, materials needed and set the
criteria for the final results???? Help. How do you experienced art teachers
handle this.

Should I allow the last 8 days of school (before our winter break) to be used
in this manner? I would greatly appreciate any info/insight that you have.
How many of you have done this before. Seems like I am copping out. AM I?
