Art Across the Color Spectrum

My students need art supplies of pencils, paints, brushes, and paper to let their creativity flow in art class.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of ideas! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to use their imaginations! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

We are a small school in the heart of West Texas with a very diverse ethnicity.

There are not many opportunities for the children in our community to express themselves. Art, in any form, is one of the greatest ways for children to show their originality, talent, and imagination. You never know, I might have the next Picasso sitting in my class!

My Project

We plan to start with watercolor pictures. So the paper, watercolors, sharpies (for outlining the painting's individual characteristics), and paint brushes will be the first items used. Our first project will be flowers.

After that we get to try our hands at oil pastels.

They will literally end up on our hands as we create! I've never seen clean hands after coloring with oil pastels.

Then we move on to charcoals. For this we will use the charcoal sticks and charcoal pencils. They will learn that black and white pictures can be quite stunning. Finally, we will get to use the color pencils.
