Learning Styles in the Art Room
Rohrbach, Marla
Arts & Activities, v150 n2 p28-29 Oct 2011
Art students have different learning styles. Some are visual learners who need to see the information. Some are auditory learners who need to hear the information. Others are tactile/kinesthetic learners who need to move, do, or touch in order to learn. Looking over her curriculum and lesson plans, the author realized almost every art lesson incorporated all of these learning styles. One of her favorite lessons that illustrates this point is a self-portrait collage she teaches to her second-graders. In this lesson, the students review the terms "self-portrait" and "collage," but the main goal is to learn that line can show or suggest movement. By utilizing different learning styles, every child was able to achieve an understanding of how lines can show movement.
