The bench from our courtyard will look different this spring thanks to the Art Avengers!
Students developed the idea of a "Friendship Bench" that will be covered in handmade ceramic tiles that are interlocking shapes (to symbolize friendship and togetherness).
We can't wait until it warms up outside so we can enjoy our creation!

Enduring ideas or big ideas allow all ideas to be bridge together across disciplines. These big ideas provide more meaning to Art making. Assessments of knowledge through personal artwork are great at showing what a student understands. Students are essentially drawing/creating understanding. Asking yourself - what does the student need and what feels right for the class are imperative.
