Before Watching

In this program, both classes are carefully planned and structured in their content and teaching practices:

  • Pamela Mancini gives students clear and specific guidelines for creating their portraits. She keeps a detailed record of each lesson and maintains portfolios of each student’s work so she can assess their progress.
  • MaryFrances Perkins aligns mask-making with academic subject matter, including vocabulary, social studies, and geometry. She and the students refer to a checklist posted on the ceiling to verify that they use all the space on the paper, work neatly, add detail, and follow instructions.

Consider how planning and structure are important in a visual art class. How does order promote creativity?

What are some other examples of how structure in these two classrooms impacts students’ work?
