In reading some of the posts, it seems to me that a number of schools
arrange the art curriculum according to specific projects (such as
Mother's day, making plaster masks, and so on). I am wondering if
anyone, particularly at the high school level, organizes courses
according to content, maybe even interdisciplinary. For example, are
there courses offered like "women studies and art"? I think maybe our
high school is typical in offering art courses such as: Introduction to
art, Ceramics, Painting, etc. But, it seems to me that we could look at
restructuring our courses to more specifically address current issues
(ethnicity, gender, politics, etc.) in addition to media. I am
interested in how other schools handle it. Our high school enrollment is
at 2,200 and we have grades 9-12. We are considering the idea of a
visual and performing arts school within a school. Thanks in advance for
any comments.
