Ms. Christensen's Philosophy of Art Education
In line with Crossroads mission to provide a child-centered learning environment, I strive to make the art room a safe space for students to explore, observe, create and imagine. My goal is for students to think like artists and designers. This means giving them opportunities to explore a variety of art techniques and media in way that develops critical thinking and visual literacy skills. Students will continue building a vocabulary of the principals of design and the elements of art as well as reflecting on their own art making practice.
