We have two main ways of celebrating our artists.
Our “Art Stars” palette focuses on those artists who are following our code of collaboration:
I chose the stars the first week. Now, each “star of the week” chooses the star for the next week! It is so validating and lovely.
The other way we celebrate our learning is by highlighting our academic gains:
The front door of each studio is a spot to leave sticky notes about students’ artistic discoveries.
We have also done some quick shareouts while in line – “who made an amazing discovery?” might be one such prompt.
