Choice-Based Art at National Art Education Conference
There were many sessions presented about Teaching fr Artistic Behavior (TAB) and Choice-based art education in Chicago last month. Each that I attended were packed rooms, in many cases with standing-room only and spilling attendees out in the hall.
Interest is high nationally for learner-directed practices in art. The panel I spoke on included Julie Toole, an elementary teacher (from Chicago), me (Vermont, middle school) and Ian Sands, a high school teacher (North Carolina) and illustrated how TAB looks in these different settings.
