Art with Ms Jennifer Guerin
The new Visual Arts program at Mathews Elementary is based on the principles and practices of the nationally recognized and research-backed “Teaching for Artistic Behavior” (also known as TAB or Choice-based) method of teaching. The idea is simple: Students are artists and the classroom is their studio. Children are offered real choices for responding to their own ideas and interests through the making of art. When given the chance to explore their own ideas, interests and passions, students often find greater meaning and relevance in their work. This concept supports multiple modes of learning to meet the diverse needs of all students here at Mathews.
