Re: Writing in the art room-art in the classroom?

It's more than just doing art at HS level - our visual art scholastic event
requires that students be able to verbalize the thoughts, elements,
principles,etc. and I find wrtitng to be the best way to see where the kids
are in terms of being able to use the vocabulary(or if they actually know it
to start with) critique in class is great, however, you have the benefit of
hearing what the other kids say, which is great BUT the interviews are
private, and kids need the experience of collecting and assimilating all the
things they've heard and read about art - we also do an art article each 6
weeks -2 for art 2, 3 for art 3, etc. because they need to READ about art
too!! :-) Deb W
