Would a language arts teacher have students copy a poem? I think that
teacher would have the students study many poems, investigate the structure
and style, investigate the meaning in each and then have the students write
original poems. The same should be true for visual art.

Does anyone differentiation instruction? What I mean is, does anyone put
in parts of their lessons that challenge the high ability learner. We are
currently redesigning our gifted curriculum and I was thinking how it can be
done in art. My lessons are based in art history and we reproduce art work
from various artists. I always get great work out of my talented students,
but am I really challenging them? Does anyone do this or does anyone have
any ideas. Please let me know.
