We are starting on our second week of choice in Art 1 when creating a project about informal balance. Today I walked around and talked with the different groups to check in on their progress and to make sure they are on the right track. I want to say that about half understood informal balance and are able to incorporate it into their artworks. About a third of those who didn’t understand it and were not consciously addressing are now able to once talking through things with me. And, well, out of those that are left, some just are making things out of egg cartons, and one group basically said they weren’t going to do anymore, and to just give them a 70. At least they were honest about it.
I am excited and surprised by many. I have to be honest that there are some students that are surprising me in their art. Some that I thought would be the ones making the egg carton alligator are thinking outside the box. While others that I thought would nail this are the ones making the alligator.
Choice hasn’t been easy for me. Not knowing the outcome is hard for me. But, I have to learn to go with it. I will update once the unit comes to an end.
STUDENTS WORKING HARD 🙂
