  • Student Work

Focus Area: Learning Expeditions
Grade Level: Middle, High School
Class Level: 200
Facilitators:
Sonnemann, Cara
Roberts, Teresa
School/Organization: Pocatello Community Charter School

In our middle school classes, students have been using art to enrich their understanding and appreciation of scientific content. Creating “masterpieces” allows them to make an emotional connection to their learning and gives them an opportunity to show authentic thinking. Experience firsthand how the Elements of Art (building blocks of art) provide a structure which can soften the potentially scary risk-taking aspect of visual art. Participants will leave our master class with a plan for doing a project in your own classroom that adds another tool for all learners, and may empower students who do not identify as scientific thinkers to achieve success.
