Sands, Ian – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
To the general public, the topic of art education conjures up images of pencil drawings and tempera paint. If asked what a student might learn in an art class, a typical response might be that they will be taught how to draw and paint.

DiJulio, Betsy – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
This year, many high-school teachers in the district where the author teaches experienced exam anxiety because midterms--as they had come to know and love them--were no more.

Schechtman, Helaine – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
This lesson teaches students that a drawing does not have to be realistic to be a valued piece of art. It's fun to have students look at abstracts and ask them what they think they see. As they excitedly yell out "It's a bird," "It's a flower," "Huh? I don't see that!" they begin to realize the beauty of an abstract. It can be so many things to so…

Horst, Carol – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
A powerful thing happens when one object is placed next to another: A relationship is suggested and a visual dialogue of sorts is created.

Fontes, Kris – SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, 2012
Teenagers' bedrooms are reflections of their personalities. Their bedrooms showcase their individuality and define the world as they see it. Their bedrooms are private and public--shared with some and off limits to others. Each day students wake up and begin the rituals of the day, and in the evening they return to their sanctuaries and close the…
