My Students

Our school is a fully inclusive charter school in Los Angeles where all TK-8th grade students are honored for the unique abilities and talents they have to offer. Our students love open-ended, hands on activities where they can express their interests and their own unique point of view. Collaboration and group work around fun, creative activities allows all of our students to grow and learn together, regardless of ability.

In art class, we come together as a community of artists to problem solve, think creatively, and create works of art that compliment and enrich elements of classroom curriculum.

My Project

Beginning this year, all students--even our youngest at 4 1/2 years old--will be documenting their artwork in an online portfolio that will follow them through school. These portfolios are used to share artwork with students' family members near and far and are also used to assess growth over time.

In addition to maintaining their portfolios, student artists will use the iPads for research, finding inspiration, writing artist statements, participating in self-assessments, and creating photography, video, and other digital projects!

With your help, students will be able to collaborate and problem solve while gaining skills in digital literacy. Students will gain autonomy in the art studio and engage in the Studio Habits of the Mind--developing craft and skill, engaging and persisting, reflecting, etc--throughout the year, skills that will greatly aid the success of these students in school and beyond.

We are hoping to eventually achieve a 2 to 1 student to iPad ratio in the art room. This is part one of this two part effort!
