Abstract

Using surveys, interviews, and student art work, this study explores the relationship between art curriculum and female students in a private, college preparatory environment. I worked with a fine and digital art course to determine if encouraging students to make more artistic choices would impact the educational priorities of these high-achieving students. Subsequently, art students were introduced to a process-based style of assessment in the hopes they could make stronger connections to art education and their future goals. The research results illustrated that, within the participants in this study, older art students prefer classes that bring them enjoyment or personal fulfillment, while the younger students gravitate toward classes that are less challenging.
