This sharing session explores learning curves, best practices and benefits of artmaking based on new Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) education standards that are specifically implemented in an art teacher preparation program. The presenter shares ways to translate the elements and qualities of cognition found in artmaking into language used in standards and evaluation that can show equitable qualities found in arts education along with the value of artistic expression for students and teachers.
