      Dear Art Educators,

      Here is an elemantery assessment that WORKS with our "new" definition to
      "What is Art?"
      Article by Jim Crowe

      If that link doesn't work - it is under Assessmnet on the Knowledge Loom TAB
      site:
      http://knowledgeloom.org/tab

      Our "New Definition" for who is an Artist:
      St. Francis of Assissi, who said (don't know if this is exact quote)....
      "One who works with his hands is a Laborer.
      One who works with his hands and head is a Craftsman.
      One who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an Artist."

      Get your administrators behind this new definition and your grades can then
      reflect what is really happening in your classroom....Yackers will get
      "Needs Improvement" as they are not using their head. Outstanding will go to
      those who are giving it their all. Discipline problems will drop
      dramatically! (at least for those kids who have parents that make grades in
      art matter -- smile).

      John Crowe writes about his assessment document in the
      knowledgeloom.org/tab.
      He used those rubrics in his elementary art classroom, creating little
      symbols of hands, head, heart. He was able to add these symbols to the
      school
      report card...read all about this at http://knowledgeloom.org/tab under
      "assessment".

      Bonnie (TAB teacher) made a sign that reads, "Use your hands, mind and heart
      to make art" and taped it to the art room door. Everyone who passes through
      the door sees it. A few teachers commented on how much they like it.

      That is one idea you CAN all do - whether your are Choice Art Ed or not.
