ArtLab Week 3

Teachers and students meet again at Spiva to make Symbolic Totems. Using drawings from the image bank, they created a totem of symbols cut from black construction paper and installed in atypical spaces around the Center. Each teacher/student team worked collaboratively to create and install the pieces.

The director of the art center came back to lock up the building just after we all left. She called me, laughing and shrieking with joy. In all, 6 installations went up, mostly on the second floor.

Participants agreed that I may document, publish, and promote the work. Lesson plans and photo documentation will be created for each session as well as instructional objectives that reflect national art standards and state grade level expectations. Documentation will be provided via CD to participating teachers. There will be a formal assessment of the program by all participants.
