My students are unbelievably creative and have the power to do so much with so little. They make beautiful art with the simplest of materials, but when given just a little extra something special they take their creativity to a whole new level. My students are full of energy and imagination. They do not have access to many art materials at home, so I try to introduce them to as many interesting materials as I can. I want to do all I can to make every art experience they have unique and inspiring. I try to create a space that makes them feel safe and inspired,
I have been in my art room for five years and they have been amazing. In that time, I have learned a lot about what my room needs to provide students with the best learning opportunities. One major discovery we made is that having a gathering space on the floor provides us with the perfect space to share artwork and discuss new ideas. My carpets in the past have all been hand-me-downs, and they have served the art room well, but we are ready for something new! We need a new carpet to help our room feel fresh and clean as well as to create a comfortable space for our creativity to thrive.
