This is a valuable book for Art Educators but more important for Administrators and parents! I have intuitively been using a balance between "emergent curriculum student-directed," "explicit curriculum teacher-directed" but find that the majority of the time my courses are structured using "modified choice" where I choose the content they choose the medium or they choose the content and I choose the medium.

I was introduced to TAB by one of my professors, and quickly because a huge fan. I was able to attend the TAB institute at MassArt, an I highly recommend for anyone interested in adopting this philosophy. Diane and Kathy are wonderful and have paved the way for the future of art education.

This was practical and inspiring. I will use many of the ideas and suggestions to create art centers in my classroom this year. I am anxious to get started.
