• Art at PRES is a choice based art program where students work in centers to create authentic, student driven work. Students determine what their artwork is about, what it looks like, and what materials or media to use. In Choice art the learning focus is on developing student creativity, creative process, composition, communication, craftsmanship, and community. It is my role as their Art teacher to guide students through their artistic processes, determining what skills and instruction is needed to help carry out their individual visions. In addition to creating their own artwork, students complete Skill Builders which help develop artistic skills and understanding as artists.
