When I first started TAB, I would say that I was unrealistic about the students producing projects. I forgot to leave time for them to build skills and explore with material. I cannot stress enough to starting TAB teachers the importance of letting students play with materials. Think about yourself as an artist: What do you do when you encounter a new material? You play and experiment. Your curiosity takes the lead with this process. If we (art educators) truly intend to teach artistic behaviors we need to reflect on our own artistic processes.
I found this poster on Pinterest. I thought that it was a good guide to explaining the different types of art that will be produced throughout the year. I do not who created the poster, but have been told that it is by an art educator, Julie Toole.)
I have my first quarter of art posted below, and an identity unit that I have used in the past.
