Online Submission
The purpose of this study was to measure the effects of Choice-Based Art Education on supporting the needs of all learners in an inclusive classroom, while building confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Over a seven-week period, data was collected through photographs, pre- and post- surveys, interviews, pre- and post-creativity challenges, observations, student artifacts, attitudes surveys and through a Creativity Assessment Rubric. These methods were implemented to determine if Choice-Based Art Education can build confidence, creativity and critical thinking skills for all learners. This study introduced students to art studio centers, art making techniques, artistic behaviors, and studio critiques through artist studio practice and routine. The data collected provides insight into how Choice-Based Art Education does support the needs of all student populations, while building supports, confidence, creativity, and critical thinking skills longitudinally.
