So long internet, hello art books!

I am slowly building up the previously non-exsistant Visual Art library book by book. We have a great collection already and I’ve really enjoyed watching the Grade 10’s thumb through the books looking for artists to research for their interpreting a theme unit. Not a single student has chosen the same artist. I am looking forward to some very different material investigations and final outcomes. It is so good to see the books all over the tables rather than laptops open and students disappearing into their own searching worlds… so much more discussion took place and it’s easier for me to see what choices they’re leaning towards so I can jump in and help, or guide them to a better decision if needed. If you have any suggestions of some great art books I’d love to know!
