At Lewis Frasier Middle School in Hinesville, visual arts teacher Carol Ann Hough engages students in innovative, interdisciplinary activities that make their work meaningful, relevant and visible to the community. Her Patriot Pottery Small Business teaches students how to organize and manage a small cottage industry, allowing them to develop their artistic skills while learning practical applications of math, computer and business skills. Mrs. Hough uses a Discipline-Based Art Education Curriculum (DBAE), helping students see the connections among different subjects, and sponsors the school's art club, which conducts a service project each year. She has helped students publish their work in an art textbook and art magazines, and has contributed their pieces to the Mayor's permanent collection of student art. She expands students' horizons through an annual student art exchange she developed with schools in Gimpo City, South Korea.
