Beyond the Art Lesson: Free-Choice Learning Centers
Werth, Laurie
Arts & Activities, v148 n1 p22-23, 53 Sep 2010
In this article, the author emphasizes that by providing learning centers in the art studio environment and by providing "free-choice time," art educators can encourage and reinforce the natural learning styles of students. Learning centers give elementary students the freedom to pursue individual artistic expression. They give students an opportunity to explore art materials, concepts and techniques beyond those stressed in the art lesson. Providing free-choice time within the art period gives the student permission to continue learning and creating, even when the guided lesson is done.
