Bonnie Baker, Art Specialist
Mary Lin has enjoyed a rich history of highlighting fine arts in our curriculum. After participating in an
Annenberg- Getty 5 -year grant, Lin was awarded #3 in the nation for implementation of
Discipline Based Art Education (DBAE), which incorporates art across all subjects.
Besides this long-standing commitment to DBAE, Lin's visual arts program is currently driven by the new Georgia
Performance Standards for Visual Arts. The five strands are the following :
- Meaning and Creative Thinking
- Contextual Understanding
- Assessment and Reflection
The final strand, Connections, is critical to Lin's art program, because lessons relate to social studies, math
Bonnie Baker is in her 16th year at Lin and brings over 30 years of experience in art education at all levels. Ten of
these years have been at the college/university level.
