In a time where many extracurricular or non-essential programs are being cut from the public school system due to lack of funding, I have been afforded the opportunity to teach an art class to the middle school students at my school. The students and I are overjoyed at the possibilities that await us when it comes to studying and creating art.
The arts help children develop on many fundamental levels!
From creativity to confidence to focus and even collaboration, the arts help children learn and develop characteristics that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. The arts have a very tangible, measurable, and essential impact on the lives of our students. I want to take this opportunity to enrich the lives of my students in ways they never knew imaginable.
Please consider helping us build our art program, but more importantly building a foundation in the lives of children.
In a day and time when there is excessive emphasis on test scores, it is essential to allow students the opportunity to express themselves creatively. Whether they realize it or not, all students have creative ability and will prosper when given the appropriate materials to use.
My students will get radiant results with the Prismacolor markers and color pencils when paired with Artway studio drawing papers.
Students will be inspired by their work and will gain a sense of pride in their abilities. They will have opportunities to create using different mediums from color pencils to oil pastels. They will learn how to use different tools to achieve varied effects. Creating with art encourages students to use analytical skills, accept and learn from mistakes, and be constructive critics of their own work.
I am excited to see the opportunities and creations my students will gain this year in their first ever art class!
