Expressive faces and patterns!
This face was created by a second grader at collage. We noticed details like the position of the eyes and mouth suggest emotion. The tape suggests cheeks and ears. This kindergarten artist uses tape to mimic pattern.
The Teaching for Artistic Behavior was formed in 2000 with the support of the Massachusetts College of Art, the NAEA and the Education Alliance at Brown University. It includes Choice-Based Art programs from around the United States. The concept emerged over 30 years ago in Massachusetts classrooms through the need for more authentic art making experiences. T.A.B. is commited to supporting and encouraging teachers who would like to provide authentic art making opportunities for students and who believe in the child first.
