The first day of class, I wanted to find out what my students' thoughts were about ART. After going over the syllabus and procedures in the art room (essentially boring them to death). I gave everyone a post-it note. I prompted them to complete the sentence, "Art is...." I left the format open. They could write a sentence or two, write a poem, draw a picture, .... I was happy to learn that most felt art was a positive thing. Perhaps, I will ask the same question at the end of the quarter to see if the responses have changed or become more complex. We shall see.
