Abstract

Each student has their own interests and skill sets that make them unique, and it is our job as educators to teach our students new skills sets beyond their comfort zone to make them well rounded individuals. The challenge lies in how educators not only teach their students these new skill sets, but how educators engage them and keep them engaged so that they remember these skill sets years after leaving the education system. Art is arguably one of the many important classes a student needs to be a well-rounded individual, but it is often outside of many students’ skill sets, or so they believe. Because of this some students tend to dislike art and eventually disengage in art class altogether. The goal of this study is to use different factors such as materials, teaching strategies, and community integration to better engage students, particularly the disengaged students, in art class.
