Welcome to Village School Art 2010-2011

My name is Kristine Biegel. I am a graduate student and I will be working this year with teachers and students at Village Elementary School in the creation and implementation of arts based projects designed to compliment the classroom teacher's curriculum. Our goal is to incorporate all types of arts based projects into the curriculum so that all students will have the opportunity to get creative and learn in many different learning styles. Speaking of different learning styles, check out Sir Kenneth Robinson who is a huge proponent for creative teaching as he shares quite entertainingly the importance of this in a presentation he gave in 2006 at a TEDtalks conference. He gives great examples and shares inspirational stories on how creative teaching can make a difference in the lives of all students.

Please feel free to check back with us as the year progresses to share in our experiences and explorations.
