Moving toward Choice Based Projects

I recently attended our State Conference and was in more than one workshop that focused on the movement in art education toward student choice learning.  That means that the student should have more input into the subject matter and/or medium that is used in their project.  I have been working toward allowing my students more choice in their projects, whether they have a choice of media which they can use or creating their own image within certain assigned parameters (which is personal choice and problem solving) .  Here students are working on still life drawings where they chose which art supplies they wanted draw as well as how they were arranged.  I am continuing to work on allowing more choice so students can truly own their work, as well as learn to make personal choices and solve visual problems with confidence.
