Key Concepts/Key Words: During this student-generated, small group session, students continue to identify artists, techniques and terminology they have learned and are able to assess the areas which they will need to further develop through their research for the project. They will also begin developing a working discourse, democratically designing a project that highlights artists in which they are interested.
