dc.description.abstract The main focus of this creative project is on learning centers and their utilization in elementary art education. As a more individual student-oriented method of teaching art, learning centers break away from traditional methods of placing emphasis on the end product and comparison with adult models. The recent introduction of a Disciplined Based Art Education (DBAE) has helped to integrate this transition into the total elementary school curriculum. In following the DBAE philosophy, the use of individualized learning approaches and learning centers will help to integrate art into the curriculum, providing both teachers and students with more positive experiences in art education.A sample learning center is included with examples and explanations provided for each activity. The chosen artist is Pablo Picasso, focusing on his personal background and his many contributions to the art world. The learning center should be implemented after a classroom study of the specific artist and can be adapted to studies of different artists in the future. A sample lesson plan and artist brief have also been included.
