Greetings! First, thank you to everyone who writes and shares your opinions
and advice. I tend to be a reader. I think of you as my support group as
I am the only art teacher in my high school. We all need feedback and
support. Artsednet has been great! Second, a note on portfolios...I
require all my Art Ones to keep everything in their portfolios during the
school year. As part of their final grade the last six weeks, and as part
of their final exam, they spend the last week of school turning their
portfolios into a book. They choose Japanese bound books, accordian books
or a collection of single signature books in a holder. They learn about
bookbinding and use their creativity to design their own "Journey Through
Art". Former students tell me how they still have their books. I proudly
keep my own children's on the coffee table.
This year some students even included things that they had done during the
school year but outside of art class in their books.
