As art teachers we have BIG goals for our art programs. Extensive year-long themes and curriculums require many class sessions to complete. And the more classes a project requires, the more likely it is that kids will fall behind. And that means a portfolio of unfinished work.
One of the most effective ways to tackle unfinished work is to schedule a make-up art day for your students. Not only are they helpful in building the confidence level of your young artists but they’ll have more finished art to choose from for your annual art show. It’s a win-win!
Why you should schedule a Make-up day:
1. Students can select which project means the most to them
2. Students feel a sense of accomplishment
3. Portfolios reflect the full body of work the student has created
4. More projects to select from for the art show
1. Set up your space to reflect how students will move through their projects.
2. Pull our portfolios and lay on table
3. Determine the projects that have the most unfinished work
4. Set up individual tables with the supplies to work on those projects
5. Allow children to move from table to table
