Multiple Intelligences in Art

The students in Color & Design explored their strengths after learning about Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences. They took quizzes to find their strongest “intelligence” and then created an artwork that used or expressed that strength. They chose the subject matter, media, and techniques that best fit their interests.


upcycled books (color & design)

The students in Color & Design spent the entire semester creating upcycled books. These books were donated from the library and given a new life. The requirements of the project were that the books had to have a consistent theme, at least two 3D “pop-up” techniques, have at least eight pages and use at least eight different types of media and a cover. I love how this project showcases each student’s interests.
