Have students choose medium and explain why they chose that material
"Mini" lessons before a longer and robust unit. For example, students create their own mini collage on any topic/subject focusing mainly on techniques before a more robust "Big Idea" aligned collage project
make sure students at each grade level are exposed to as many different media as is age apporporate
Several class sessions of process over product for the student on the elementary level.
allow choice of creating traditionally or digitally
Last year the kids favorite art project was when we created personal treasure boxes. Students brainstormed symbols of what they “treasure” such as their family, pets, hobbies, etc. They made clay icons to fill and decorate a slab-constructed clay treasure box.
Give students variety of materials and in their sketchbooks, experiment and decide what media they feel works best for the project.
Choice Based projects
choice stations and technique tutorials
Love the treasure box idea!
documented multi media portraits
Make the choice part of the challenge, after teaching multiple techniques, students explain why they chose a particular media or style

Thank you! This was very informative!
I love the efforts to make "cultural" standards include representation of our students. Also culture as a living thing, not just a thing of the past. Great job!
