|a world of choices|
|This is a list of
artists, teaching artists and art works that are woven into our unit of study. Art is our
doorway into a journey of experience and meaning. Although the arts reveal the history of
times and cultures gone by, they also allow us to explore the meaning of our own thoughts,
ideas, feelings and belief systems and consider them next to our neighbors.
The artworks were chosen because they seemed to evoke a range of responses around a theme that was decided upon by a collaboration of a planning team. The team members would discuss personal issues and interests in art and later be asked to look for connections that would allow for a common theme that would satisfy a variety of interests. These themes usually had something to do with what was going on in the school community.
Some of the artworks were chosen because they made a specific connection to curriculum. Many of the artworks contained details that allowed viewers to develop graphic visual stories that contained poetically alive language and thoughtful experience.
