Student teacher Ms. Wiltshire led this awesome lesson about art careers and businesses in the real world! Grade 8 students collaborated on business plans for art studios and created samples of merchandise and promotional materials for their businesses. Each group was required to design and choose logo designs, figure cost and profit analyses, and decide on their marketing plans. Every member had to contribute elements for the final presentation. Finally, the groups presented a display featuring their merchandise and business models. We are ready for investors!
