Back From NAEA-Boston!

One of the highlights for me at the National Art Education Convention in Boston last week was seeing the T.A.B. (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) Art show from Choice Based programs around the country. Of course it was a thrill to see “my kids” work at the Mass Art Arnheim Gallery, but what really struck me at the exhibit were the student’s statements about their work. (See below for a sample). When students are making art about their interests, their knowledge, their passion and their own life, the value and meaning of the resulting artwork is profound. I saw a banner at the conference that depicted the idea: Hands + Mind + Heart = Art. Choice based art programs support the whole child.

Profound statements support art at TAB art show at Mass Art in Boston

The artist's statement says:"If you like to do splash art, then that means you have a soul."

Artist's statement detail

Artist's statements support student's artwork, lending insite into thoughts, motivations, influences and intentions.

The center piece at the TAB show at Mass Art was this dragon mural by a 5th grade boy from Indiana
