Access to Artistic Expression

Help me give my students oil pastels, colored pencils & a sharpener so they may express themselves through artistic expression.

My Students

My students are social eager learners! They are caring, helpful, and artistic. We are a small elementary school in the heart of Los Angeles and my students live near the art district. I would love for my students to have access to an abundance of opportunities to express themselves thru integrating the arts with content areas and realize they can create careers by using their creative expression; recently, they created Harlem Renaissance style art that resembled Jacob Lawrence’s genre, but worked with tiny pieces of oil pastels.

My Project

Artistic expression is a form in which students can share their abilities in a fun way. I plan to continue teaching reading comprehension thru rich literary text analysis of the Harlem Renaissance. The study of Langston Hughes’ poems thru literary analysis will support CCSS proficiency of figurative language. We will study similes, metaphors & personification. A collaborative work of art will be the culminating artistic integration. Students will create a project on large construction paper to mimic a metal utility box. They will be asked to join a mock competition to beautify their local community by designing art for the metal utility box with imagery presented hy Langston Hughes’ poem.
