As an educator, I want to show my students lessons that explore contemporary artists. I want them to be able to see that art can be taken further then the classroom. By showing students a variety of different artists I can better meet the needs of different students. Allow them to engage in issues of importance, and feel a part of something bigger then themselves. The art room provides students a place to explore and appreciate individuality and see and accept difference. It teaches them that in art there is no right or wrong answers.
