My Students

Inspire students to develop their creative sides and create beautiful pieces of art in the style of Tiffany himself!

I teach a wonderful group of gifted and talented fifth grade students in a Title I school in New York City.

These students come from multicultural backgrounds but share a common bond in their love of learning. The students love to explore and investigate new and interesting ideas and we work hard to bring them new experiences and materials during our school day. However, one creative domain is not available for them - visual arts. They need ways to explore and express themselves visually.

My Project

We are looking to extend past our normal reading, writing and mathematics to enter into the world of art. And what better way then through the beautiful art of Tiffany windows. Students will get a chance to develop their own images and create them with wonderful art materials. This project brings together our social studies with the all too important visual arts that we do not have in our school this year. We are asking for the materials to make Tiffany inspired windows - markers, vinyl clings, sharpie markers, foam shapes and rulers, as well as a clothing line to hang our work up on.

By contributing to this project you allow students to explore their creative sides, design wonderful "stained glass windows" that they will be able to bring home and enjoy for years to come.

Who knows, you may inspire the next L.C. Tiffany to Vincent Van Gogh!
