This praxis portfolio reveals the importance of reflection for the art teacher and the students, using contemporary art works and teaching methods as the foundation. Ten contemporary artworks inspired ten art lessons.  The six chapters of this eBook teaching portfolio include: Differentiation, Arts Integration, Meaning to Materials, Communication, Creativity, and Positive Reinforcement.  This self-reflective experience emerged as a result of my own practice as student, teacher, artist and researcher.  The curriculum was developed using the following frameworks as a guide:  The Principles of Possibility, Art For Life, Understanding by Design and “See, Think, Wonder.”  In documenting my practice, I realized that my own differentiated learning style often matched that of my students. Becoming a more reflective practitioner cultivated a learning environment that was interdependent, collaborative and reflective.  In documenting one’s metacognitive art education practice a deeper connection is possible and leads to greater understanding of community, students and self.

Portfolio of Practice

There are times when we measure our students work: create meaningful work, use vocabulary, form opinions, make connections, recognize and demonstrate an understanding. Contemporary art and methods allowed me to accomplish this part of teaching without having to facilitate an art experience like "paint a symmetrical butterfly using warm and cool colors in five steps." The ten practiced contemporary art experiences are shared at the end of each chapter!
