Displaying Student Art


Date: Thu Jul 18 2002 - 22:11:08 PDT

I don't keep portfolios at the middle school level. All student work is
graded then hung for a minimum of 2 weeks. After that I pass them back,
however I do hold a few for special exhibitions that I return before the year
ends. If I keep their work, I send a letter home that tells the parents
where their childs work will be and for how long.
My Advanced HS students show their work all year round. It may be in the HS
cafeteria, Auditorium lobby, Board room at the Administration Bldg or at the
local HS exhibition at the Kalamazoo Institute of Art or a locally sponsored
competion. Wherever it is on display, my students get their work back at the
end of the year or if they have a college portfolio review (or if they come
to me and request it). My art 1 class (Beginning HS art) is basically the
same as the Middle school- I display at school, then return the work to the
Kathy in Kalamazoo
