Recent reconsideration of education policies in Greece to include experiential learning in the high school curriculum signals a positive transformation of education. It is obvious that art as a school subject can benefit from this reconsideration. I hypothesize that experiential learning can be a proper context in which to teach art through the concept of art as research. To support this thesis, I draw on my involvement as art teacher in two experiential research courses during the 2014–2015 academic year. The first course is being taught in two eighth-grade, junior-high classes and the second in a tenth-grade, senior-high class. Given that the two courses are not yet completed, I will herein describe some of my decisions so far in constructing students’ research journeys.
