We have an amazingly diverse student body at our middle school. Our students love to come to school every day and for many of them, look back onto their middle school years as their favorite academic school years. Some common characteristics among our students include an appreciation for cultural diversity, an understanding of shared leadership, tech savviness, creative problem solving and global thinking.
Our students work hard every day and give up their spare time to give back to their local and global community through organizations like Project Linus, Operation Gratitude, and Students Rebuild.
Our students also demonstrate school pride through their involvement with extracurricular activities including sports teams and after-school clubs like Magazine Club, Math Club, and Engineering Club.
My students work very hard at school every day and look forward to their creative release once they step into the "Expressions" classroom. My students attend "Expressions" every day and connect with their inner artist through the creative process! I hope to provide a well structured and organized classroom in order to continue to challenge and engage their creative spirit!
Providing students with a variety of options is IDEAL in the art room. Students plan their art projects with basic materials in mind, but why keep it BASIC? I want to have available puff paint for dimension, or a variety of colored thread for embroidery, or charcoal to illustrate depth. I'm requesting Sargent Art acrylic paints, painters tape, fabric paints, watercolor paper, Astrobrights card stock, sewing needles, and sewing thread for all my students to use to create.
If I was able to provide students with all the little things I believe it could really really boost creativity!
I just love to be able to fuel student ideation with the extra little medium they need.
It's hard enough to keep basic materials stocked regularly so assign all the little things would make the art room a perfect space to create!
