Studies have shown that art can tap into multiple components of the brain. Creating art can activate academic components such as reading, math, science, social studies, and more. Art can also improve one's mental health and allow healthy forms of self-expression. The requested resources will allow me to provide opportunities to support my art students as they navigate through these pandemic times both academically and socially/emotionally. This project will also allow me to teach coping skills and provide coping activities to strengthen my student's responses to this ever-changing world. Students will be given different artists to study. Artist study included lectures, history of time period and location of study, reading, and research. Then we will recreate artworks through different mediums. Through the recreation, we apply math skills (geometric/organic shape identifications, ratios, balance, proportions, etc.) and science skills (predictions of medium applications, mixing of primary colors to create needed colors, cause, and effect, how different materials interact with each other). And throughout this entire process, we will be building confidence in our art skills by going out of our artistic boundaries and trying new mediums, and learning new techniques and strategies to create beautiful works of art that we can be proud of and share with our families and community members. We also reflect on our finished works to discuss what we liked about the projects, what we didn't like about it, and what we would do differently if we were to do it again. We encompass art as it touches and opens every component of our brains. We activate art, we learn from art, and we apply art to our ever-changing world. Through this, we find the good, we focus on the good, and we create the good.
