I teach in a very diverse school with high poverty. Though many of my students come to school with thoughts of traumatic experiences from home they come in with a smile! They are excited to learn and they love any activities that involve working together, art, and technology.
My students have been working hard and are proud of their accomplishments and growth in academics!
It makes me so happy to see them succeed and their confidence increase! Their perseverance is inspiring to say the least!
Students will be using Bienfang Aquademic watercolor paper and Blick Golden Nylon paint brushes, as well as Sakura Cray-Pas Junior Artist Oil Pastels in assorted colors to express their creativity through art in class. The supplies will be replacing the current brushes; which are falling apart and were of poor quality to begin with.
With these high quality art materials, students' will receive the message that they are worthy of the best and their art is worth it.
My hope is that students will be motivated to slow down and really appreciate their art. They will also learn how to properly take care of these supplies. My students will use these materials to experiment with art materials and create their own work to express their creativity. They will be able to learn about specific styles of artwork including works by Edgar Degas, who famously used pastels in his collection of work. We'll use watercolor paints with our brushes and paper to create works of art while studying Georgia O'Keeffe. At the end of our lessons, students will be able to apply what they've learned and experienced with a field trip to our local art museum to view some famous pieces in person.
