Artists Observe

During the two weeks that students were learning about biking skills in PE, they were learning about observation skills in art. Artists observe and notice details they wouldn't necessarily notice unless they were looking closely. Like any skill, if you want to get better at it, you need to practice. This holds true for drawing!

Artists also observe when painting. This student wanted to make a replica of The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. This was something she did entirely on her own, driven by her interest. That's one thing I love about choice-based art! That students can learn based on their individual interests is key to their engagement in their own learning!
