Crafting meaningful art making experiences for students is a matter of leaving room for discovery. Sequencing a series of teaching and learning moments that pose questions and present challenges with no 'single right answer' is at the heart of what I do as a teaching artist. A seemingly simple lesson allowing adequate time for students to explore possibilities – to tinker and play with materials, combined with plenty of time for meaningful sharing of the artwork created are the ingredients for an empowering creative experience. The following video clips step you through The Rectangle Book a simple yet rich lesson that I never grow tired of presenting. I think you will see how this simple lesson can lead to a variety of explorations in art as well as other disciplines. Enjoy.
