Thank you Traci, Julie and Janice
Training Update – November 2017
They have been divided into small groups and gave two 5 minute mini print presentations to practice their skills. The trainees also participated in the full 3rd Grade Abstract Art Lesson and Workshop led by Michelle K. in their 4th week of class. It was beneficial to learn through participation and they each created their own beautiful piece of art.
The following week we all ventured to Daves Avenue to observe a 2nd grade Color & Value Lesson taught by the experienced docent Mary L. After returning to class, we had discussion about this and other observations and how it related to their homework on topics of curriculum, classroom skills and preparation.
Week 6 was the opportunity for each of the trainees to present a 5 minute single print on their own. We assigned them each one print, one grade level and a few of the visual art terms to incorporate into their quick presentation. We evaluated them based on our expectations that they each introduce themselves, present their art terms clearly and grade appropriately, ask questions, repeat answers, formulate more discussion from the answers, summarize their terms/lesson, thanking the class and ending with a positive comment.
All 7 trainees successfully completed this task and we look forward to seeing their skills as they prepare for the full print presentations they will be doing the final weeks of training.
