Visual Art Educators - The Magic of Contemporary Art

All too often when we think of art taught in schools, programs like Arts Attack! and Meet the Masters tend to dominate the curriculum. However, these programs are often designed to teach children a very traditional way of thinking about and executing visual art. The world of contemporary art is vast, and there are countless ways artists are communicating ideas about the world, their lives, and academic subjects such as math, science, and language arts. Tapping into the breadth of contemporary art and utilizing it as a tool to teach other subjects through arts integration, will allow teachers and students to experiment, explore, and discover a whole new level of creativity. By encouraging critical thinking and creating project prompts that are open-ended, students will have the opportunity to translate their ideas into pieces of art that can be shared with friends and family in new and unexpected ways.
