Ms. Dukes’ Classroom Edit display name

  • Conyers Middle School
  • Conyers, GA
  • More than three‑quarters of students from low‑income households

Your custom url is https://www.donorschoose.org/ms-dukes

The desired materials I am seeking for my classroom will allow my students to actively engage in various visual art lessons by engaging in multiple hands-on activities using a variety of resources. Outlined lessons will include drawing, painting, sculpture, and art history to name a few. The art materials for our classroom will allow the students to make a variety of products. This coming year there will be an emphasis on painting using different paints such as pastels, watercolors and tempera paints. Also, students will create three dimensional forms that mimic specific styles of modern artistic styles. The students will have the opportunity to create great products with their materials, and processes will help them to have a greater appreciation for visual arts. They will explore the history of art, as well as the personal life stories of famous artists. They will research and become familiar with the contributions of many multicultural groups and how artifacts have a direct connection to their daily lives. In addition, it is the intentions that their engagement in art lessons connected to core content areas will contribute to increased academic performance on general and standardized testing. They will have the opportunity to be explorative and produce creative products that allow them to use their personal experiences as their source of motivation.
