Studio Habits of Mind

A mainstay for all of our work in the art studio is the Visual Arts Studio Habits of Mind (from the book Studio Thinking, by Lois Hetland and others), with special focus on three of the eight important habits:

• Engage and Persist
• Stretch and Explore
• Develop Craft

Class assignments are structured to help students develop the habits of persisting through challenges and being willing to try new things.  The development of these "habits of mind" is essential in the study and learning of the visual arts.  They are also important in all other subjects areas as well as in life has a whole.  Engagement in visual arts is a vital and significant part of the educational life of all children, and we are fortunate at Bayside/MLK Academy to be able to provide our students, each and all, with a strong and growing program.  Thank you to our Sausalito Marin City School District Board of Trustees and administration, and to our non-profit The Center for Excellence: Empowering Students through the Arts for making this possible!
