  • This is a Choice Based Classroom. Choice based art learning or Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB) is a nationally recognized art education approach to teaching art. The TAB concept enables students to experience the work of the artist through authentic learning opportunities and responsive teaching.

    Choice-based art education regards students as artists and offers them real choices for responding to their own ideas and interests through the making of art.  Choice-based art education supports multiple modes of learning and assessment for the diverse needs of students.

    Students work then in fact is authentic to them and not a "cookie-cutter" replictaion of the teachers work. Students will have opportunities to explore and learn various aspects of art while being true to the artistic process.
