A student in my classroom will encounter a multitude of art media from 2-dimensional to technology. They will participate in the artistic process from an idea's inception to creation through reflection and critique to exhibition. My students will explore the history of art and its impact on the contemporary. They will "learn to say what cannot be said" and have an "experience we can have from no other source" which will enable them to "discover the range and variety of what we are capable of feeling." The artists that develop in my class will leave with an appreciation of the arts that transcends skills but infuses itself into aspects of their everyday life.
