Dear Jen, I too dislike 40 identical projects on display. What we do in our
school is have a curriculum fair and art show. What we do is ask students to
bring back a project (or more) that they have completed in art class this year
or last that they would like to see displayed during the art show. I put out
all of the projects brought back---it is only a small percent of the school.
I hang them up or display them on tables if they are 3D work, (they are all
different) and label them with students name, grade, and kind of project. I
save some projects during the year that I think are a good representation of
the art curriculum and put these out as well. (but not all of them and
certainly not the best.) So EVERY student has an opportunity to have some of
their work on display if they choose to since I send the notice about bringing
in a favorite project well before the art show. This way when a child brings
back a project parents usually come to see the show since their child is SURE
to have work in it. I make certain that all the work the children return for
the show are displayed beautifully--- this always impresses the parents and
the kids are thrilled. It also is insentive for the kids next year to bring
in a project for the show.
