My Students

Our classroom has a culture where everyone works together. Our students are inquisitive, full of energy and eager for hands-on projects. Every day our students look forward to an exciting day of learning.

We believe that all students, regardless of ethnicity or socioeconomic status, deserve equitable access to the highest quality arts education taught by best-in-field certified arts teachers – OCPS Visual & Performing Arts Educators.

Our art room provides visual arts lessons that support classroom experiences to encourage students in all grades to:

• seek and construct meaning through encounters with art.

• discover the significance and value of art in their lives.

• learn and use new vocabulary.

• explore all areas of visual arts.

Our students come from a variety of low economic backgrounds with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Putting the right tools in my students' hands and letting them explore is crucial in cultivating their hunger for innovation, science, the arts and creative exploration.

My Project

Art supplies are used every day and need to be replenished frequently. We need oil pastels and markers for student to color with and paper to draw on.

Please donate to this great project to ensure supplies for our very creative art room.

The students need these new art supplies. As students explore their artistry and discover their favorite mediums they will begin to grow a collection of favorites that will help them create many drawings and paintings as they go through their journey learning about the different mediums available in the art classroom.

These types of art supplies are what we depend on to enjoy and to pursue our art passions. The process will be different whether we use the markers or oil pastel crayons, but in general, these type of supplies are fairly often in need of replenishment.
