On a way-too-beautiful Saturday morning recently, art teachers from around Vermont gathered in the CBMS art studio to discuss Choice-Based Art education and the concept of Teaching for Artistic Behavior.

Each teacher brought a sample of student art from their classrooms, and together we created a “pop-up art show.” Tunbridge, Twinfield, Hyde Park, Waterbury & Georgia were some of the schools represented. Topics discussed included; nuts and bolts for organizing and maintaining choice-based classrooms, approaches to assessment, teaching about and using "artist's statements," new books and other resources, and digital portfolios.
Regional TAB gatherings are happening all around the U.S., organized at the grassroots level for and by art educators who value the opportunity to learn and grow from our collective experience.
