Mona competition means nothing to me. All it is - unmeaningful art objects produced mindlessly. But It could be a wonderful idea if our field could get together and agree that changes need to be made. Create a new system for this show.
Too many schools concentrate on "object d'art" and forget we are educating students and not little artists.
Ahhhh - preach, preach, preach - but what am I doing about it. I'm fighting away in my little corner and will keep doing so until I retire or the field changes - even just a little.
Mona I think we need is to give the students the capacity to create rich meaning in their work, not some "Indian Sand Paintings" that have little or no meaning to the fourth grade students that are creating them. We need to teach lessons that are developmentally appropriate to the hurdles they are currently trying to overcome, that give students technical skills, that give students (again developmentally appropriate) contextual and formal information they need.
We need to stop concentrating so much on the media when it is such a neat project that we have forgotten what the meaning of it is. I am speaking to many multicultural projects here. (Sorry ahead of time for expressing my dissatisfaction with them)
I am getting carried away with my middle school level ideas
As far as the secondary level goes, the scholastic art show stay at home a lots of time?
