Art Lab Days:We entered into week three of the Art Studio with Art Lab days. An 'art lab' just like a science lab is a place where students can experiment and make new discoveries with materials and combinations of materials. It is very much a place that students can explore the processes of making art and hopefully gain empowerment via hands on discoveries.
I hope this year to embed more of these sessions into the Art Studio curriculum and in the future have the kids document some of the process or at least the discoveries using their iPads. For now it was just exploration and by all accounts very successful sessions.
Here are some photos of the goings on and a slide show.
