To really unleash the power of art and visual literacy in the classroom, students need to see themselves as both successful artists and art critics. If you have students who frequently say, “I can’t” when it comes to art, share this book by Peter Reynolds.
I appreciate his way of giving a gentle nudge to reluctant artists and encouraging people to feel free to express themselves. This story reminds us to “Make your mark and see where it takes you.”
