Abstract

This study is intended to analyze the differences of elementary age students from two different public elementary schools and their motivation to learn about art. The analysis will compare and contrast the results of my efforts as an art educator to present the same curricular information to both groups of students.

I have examined the demographics, the parent involvement, and the other areas affecting the students of the two schools in which I have taught during my seven years as an elementary art educator. My purpose in completing this study has been to better understand how to meet the needs of my current students who seem to struggle considerably in the art classroom when compared to the students I have previously taught. I wish to better understand what shapes the minds and attitudes of our students today whom we teach in art programs.students today that we teach in art programs.
