Adventurous Artists

My Students

I am an art teacher in a Title I elementary school in Denver, CO serving students in grades Kindergarten through 6. The majority of students in our School District qualify for the federal free and reduced lunch program.

Working in a high-needs, high-poverty area, these students are not exposed to many forms of art and don't have the resources to create them.

Art is a great outlet for my students to communicate and connect with one another as a school community. The students at our school are incredibly artistic and love to spend their own time, including lunch and recess, in the art room creating new projects. They are not only interested in the art forms taught in class, but are inspired by art the see in the community as well.

My Project

Students at our school have not had high quality materials or a consistent art class in the past years. My students struggle with feeling proud of what they have created and are hesitant to try new concepts.

These materials would give my students an opportunity to grow in their creativity and artistic skills.

When students are able to focus on the idea and the project itself, rather than the quality of the materials, they will able to grow as artists and fully express their creativity.

With these materials, we will be able to create artworks that are intertwined with their classroom lessons and units.
