TAB vs. Choice ART- We are a TAB Studio!
The Willow Brook Art Studio is a TAB Studio. We have used the Choice-Based and TAB acronym interchangeably, however there are some differences between the two that you may find interesting. Choice provides options. It can be choice in materials, process or even artistic interpretations, however TAB is a pedagogy that was founded by Diane Jacquith and Katherine Douglas. TAB is an acronym that stands for Teaching for Artistic Behaviors where children are taught to think like artists and promote divergent thinking. Art is self directed after a short demonstration. Read more about the differences here on the Art of Ed blog. Are you on the Choice Spectrum or thinking about diving into a life-changing pedagogy that creates strong relationships with your students?
