I teach art K-8 at a public school. I am trying to integrate technology into the art curriculum through the use of digital media. My school has a focus in the Fine Arts. During their middle school years, students can select Music, Drama, Dance or Visual Art as a focus. Instead of once a week they receive two forty minute classes a week. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to see the students flourish when given the time and opportunity to pursue an area of interest that gives them joy and helps them to express themselves. Many of the students I see during these classes are mainstreamed from their special education self contained classrooms. The art class is one of just a few opportunities for them to mix with other students their own age. I have seen wonderful growth and positive interactions among all of the students when they learn and work together.
