  • 2. Art educators as 21st century leaders "To be literate in this day and age, you have to be creative and be an artist on some level. We are living in a very dynamic, a very literate, and a very aesthetic age, and you ignore this at your own peril in terms of your potential for financial success." It is time for art to step up and say, “we are not a content area, we are about more than self- expression, we are about jobs!” Jason Ohler, Interview on www.thecreativeeducator.com
  • 3. Art educators as 21st century leaders "At least once a week 14% of teachers let students make something with technology. 63% NEVER do." Kids want to be making! and not just in art! A Vision of K-12 Students Today https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_A-ZVCjfWf8
  • 4. Art educators as 21st century leaders "I employ XX in art class because the students don't get it in their other classrooms." Art and design in every classroom, not just art.
  • 5. Art educators as 21st century leaders Creating nonlinguistic representations of knowledge requires students to organize and elaborate on the information. Robert Marzano and team state, “the more we use both systems of representation – linguistic and non-linguistic – the better we are able to think about and recall knowledge." Who better to teach visual skills than you? Marzano, R. J., Pickering, D. J., & Pollock, J. E. (2001). Classroom instruction that works: Research-based strategies for increasing student achievement. Alexandria, VA: ASCD

  • 13. Art Across the Curriculum: Math Common Core State Standards - Math - Geometry Grade 4 3. Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
  • 14. Symmetry Essential Questions How do artists use symmetry? Is symmetry beautiful? What does symmetry sound like? What does symmetry feel like? Why use symmetry to make art?
  • 15. Art Across the Curriculum: Math Common Core State Standards - Math - Geometry Grade 1 2. Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape Grade 8 3. Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
  • 16. Tessellations Tasks worth doing Create a tile design to be used at a local park that reflects the culture and activities that have taken place at this location in the past and ways it will be used now.

  • 19. Art Across the Curriculum: Social Studies "As they consider examples of visual art works within historical contexts, students gain an deeper appreciation of their own values, of the values of other people, and the connection of the visual arts to universal human needs, values, and beliefs." Art history, art in history, artists, and artistic styles.
