Teaching Artistic Behaviors - TAB
Today's first day team building challenge was a huge success and the perfect way for my students to experience and exhibit many artistic behaviors.
The challenge: very simple - 25 balloons, 3 people that don't know each other well, and one class period to make the tallest balloon sculpture possible. We did look at Jeff Koons and briefly discussed some of his work.
- Create original art
- Develop art making skills
- Communicate through their work
- Take chances and risks
- Solve problems
- Have global awareness of artmaking
Wow! On the first day my students exhibited all (or almost all) of these! It's going to be a great year!
