Chapter 2Teaching Art
I have come to a frightening conclusion. I am the decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess tremendous power to make a childs life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or de-humanized.

For Next MondayRead chapter three.E-mail me one paragraph reaction about this class and about the art museum. Tell me at least 3 things a teacher should do when teaching art... Or any subject. Dont forget! email@example.comRemember... No class next Thursday! Work on person art time line. (Due 1-25-10)Are you ready???????????????????????????????????????????????????
The teacher is the most important art tool in the supply list!Teachers must understand their own history as an artist. - Many have a low self esteem in art because they were poorly taught or had a highly directed program.By modeling the teachers facilitate artistic growth.Think about your own aesthetic development.. We choose the way we wear our hair, select our clothes and furnish our rooms. Artists are always picking and choosing materials and how they are going to use them.Children need to be able to make decisions for explorations.The creative process is at work all of the time. Every day when they have to figure out how something broke, or have to change a habit they are using the creative process!~Adults have more habits, hence their creative process is more inhibited than children's. Children do not have such a large library of habits.Most children are not exposed to adults creating and talking about art.For most students, art is something done at school, not home.Teachers must MODEL artistic behavior! It is not just for children!~ Most children do not see adults with play dough or at an easel, only children.Demonstrate means to model simply!Our non verbal behavior needs to match what we are saying to children. If there is an inappropriate behavior such as paint on the tables, remove the paint from the table first, then comment on the artwork. Either sit beside or stoop to interact with the child.
Children can see how we are feeling. Show children that art can be used as a release for emotions lets children know that people of all ages use art as a release.
Active listening - listen to the child first before respondingEstablish eye contact firstContinue eye contact and go to their level to speak to them.Use appropriate facial expressions as you listen to the child.Many adults can trace their feeling of being inadequate from a careless comment by an adult.They might be unsure what to doMaybe they were scolded for drawing on the wall.
Everyone makes art the way they want!Children need to be reassured that their art is acceptable as they choose to make it.Eliminate patterns and models to copy and maintain a hands off policy.Never try to fix the artwork. You can perform art surgery Qualities of a Facilitating teacher:Displays many examples of artwork in the room, but does not present them as models for the children to copyProvides a choice of materialsAllows children to use the materials as they wishDoes not require that the artwork look like a certain way.Provides the children with ample timeIts safe - Teachers feel confident they can teach children how to do this.Product - Oriented ApproachA model made by an adult or competent child is displayed by the teach to how the children how their project should look like.The teacher gives children only prepared materials such as precut shapes and or counted-out piecesThe teacher does not allow children to add any other materials to their projects.The teacher gives the children adult-made or commercial stencils to trace, or pictures to color.Children complain they they cannot do art. They want the teacher to do their projects for them.The teacher limits the amount of time the children can work on their projects.The teacher fixes, finishes, or changes a childs project so it looks right.Draw a large balance on the chalkboardLabel one scale Directive and one FacilitatingTeams will sort the activities by whether they are closer to the directed approach or the facilitated approach .Each team member will bring up a card and place it on the scale relative to the other, explaining why the team thought it belonged in that position.Discuss how the team decided it belonged there.
