This praxis portfolio is a reflection of the transformation of myself from a DBAE (discipline based art educator) into a Visual Language Specialist who creates student oriented curriculum. It is rooted in Olivia Gude's "Principles of Possibility," and the eight "Studio Habits of Mind," developed by Hetland, Winner, Veenema and Sheridan in their book, "Studio Thinking: The Real Benefits of Visual Arts Education." The five chapters in this eBook are: Learning To Play, Constructing Community, Express Your "Self", Engage and Persist, Knowing and Not Knowing. The connecting thread linking the chapters and artifacts is the importance of daily life/experience in teaching, learning, and art making/interpretation. Each chapter has artifacts from experiences as a student, teacher, and artist having adventures in the art making process.
