Trimester One Showcase!
One of my favorite parts of being an art teacher is watching students learn and grow through the process of creating! As art teachers, we are blessed to walk the road with students from idea to completion. We are privileged enough to get the inside scoop without needing the backstage pass.
I am constantly reminding students that I'm more interested in their journey than the end product. Sometimes it's funny discussing with colleagues about my "favorite" pieces - I'm almost never drawn to the same project in a display as they are. I'm interested in the students who "failed" by traditional definitions, but kept working through the process and persevered to the end. Those students whose faces light up when they figure out a new idea, concept, or technique. I like the walk better than the destination.
