Ms. Zeranski's Philosophy of Art Education

My goal as an art educator is to prepare students to become creative and innovative thinkers and grow confident in creating their unique and personal artwork.  I strive to create a positive learning environment where creative risk taking is encouraged through material exploration and continual self-reflection.  It is not only important for students to learn about and develop various technical skills but also embrace the art making process. The process of art making is an important journey that involves understanding different perspectives, problem solving, sometimes frustration, collaboration, and perseverance.  I hope to impart a deeper appreciation of contemporary, historical, and global art and design to all of my students.   

The current visual arts curriculum encompasses the four components of 
Comprehensive Art Education (Discipline Based Art Education)
  • Art production- Hands on exploration and expression of various art media.
  • Art History/Culture- The observation, response, and application of knowledge of visual artists and cultures.
  • Art Criticism- The study of responding to the elements and principles of art and other criteria regarding content, media, and techniques.
  • Art Aesthetics- The study and practice of forming opinions and making reasoned judgement about art.
