Mantle of the Expert:
Artist can research art supplies, and create sales characters and displays.
Artist will present found information, along with an activity during a class expo.
We spent about one whole week researching and preparing our displays and characters. The expo was held on American Education Week. Students and materials were divided between 2 days to present. When students weren’t presenting, they were attending the expo as guest artists looking for a new art material. Students used Ridgely bucks to purchase some materials from the vendors, and at the end the vendor with the most bucks one a gift card to Michaels.
After the expo we had to go over each board and activity again making sure each student received feedback from their peers on the notes packet. If you’re interested in hearing more about this lesson please feel free to leave me a comment!
