My district is in the process of implementing the National Core Art Standards. One particular focus is on presenting artwork. Students are asked to design displays of their own work and critique other exhibits they have seen. We analyze which spaces might be better suited to showing art and which viewers might partake of artwork in a particular location. We discuss museums, galleries, and other venues, trying out the careers that one might have in each location. My students are learning to display their own work, gaining independence and ownership as they make all the choices that go with that task. My young artists decide whether their class's display should include single or double mats. They figure out whether their work would look best displayed in uniform rows or scattered at a variety of angles. They choose a technique to hang their work, analyzing whether tape or clips or hooks would be best for the situation. They design and create the labels identifying their work. We consider the various spaces within the school, having lively debates about whether a certain hallway is a good option if the kindergartners would not get to see the exhibit there. My school has few spaces available for displaying student work. The areas that we do have can be difficult for my students to reach. The curriculum requires students to choose their display locations, but with few spaces, it is not much of a choice. Often, I have to hang the work myself, which takes the whole process out of the students hands. I love seeing the pride my students take in their work. It is a joy to see them putting care into making sure their classmates' work is given attention. Please help my young artists grow!
