Choice Based Art

At RMS, students do the real work of artists. Students generate thier own ideas and pursue questions and problems of their own design. The art room is organized into centers to facilitate student selection of materials and methods best suited to communicate their ideas. Typically, each class starts with a brief introduction of a new material, tool or technique. Art history and issues in contemporary art are woven into work sessions. Connections are made by students and instructor, as past experiences,art movements and innovations are related to current interests and explorations.
