Choice Based Art or TAB (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) is a method of teaching in which students learn to use art making processes. Students made personal choices which include subject matter, materials and technique experimentation. The results produce well-planned work of arts that demonstrate originality with a unique artistic touch from each student. This exhibition is a celebration of student choice in the art room!
Selected student photographs from ACES 2020-2021 residency with photographer, Carla Long, are on display. Students learned the basic concepts of digital photography and editing with iPads while working on composition. Their photographs are an extension of their immigration unit in which they chose an object of importance to take with them if they were to move to a new country. Each object holds value for that student and suggests a narrative emphasized through their photography and editing techniques.
