“The students were introduced to artists and art-making processes that without the magazines they would not have been able to discover.”
— Heather K. Aziz, visual art teacher
With a Scholastic Art magazine subscription purchased with a grant from the Melrose Education Foundation, this Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School art teacher has introduced a student-centered approach to researching famous artists. Eight grade art students are researching artists of their choice, using technology to create blog pages about their artists, and crafting works of art in a similar style to their chosen artist.
