Design Thinking > Artist Habits of Mind

Design Thinking > Artist Habits of Mind

Everyday Westosha Art students are performing tasks requiring college level abilities of skill and knowledge.  Throughout the school year, band and choir students compete for and win awards by performing college level material.  Art students submit college level  art work to the Advanced Placement College Board to earn 3 college credits.  Like an athlete who puts themselves out there to compete and perform at optimum levels, so to do our art students who put themselves in front of judges and curators that evaluate and reward their efforts.  

We believe there are two deterrents in place here at Westosha CHS that stifel an art students full potential to participate.  1. extra graduation requirements and 2. scheduling.  

We believe that a boon for the students would be a STEAM approach to the STEM movement.  For more information, I encourage you to click through posts on Westosha FAD here >  http://goo.gl/Qt60ky
