Art is a Powerful Thing

My students need watercolor paints, acrylic paints, and paint brushes to master visual and performing arts standards.

My Students

For many people art was the most engaging and relaxing time of school. Many schools struggle to provide art education due to the cost of supplies. These supplies are not donated as often as pencils and paper, however the art supplies needed are just as important in educating students.

The students are in California in a low income Title I school.

Many families have a difficult time providing basic needs for survival. These students do not have a background in art. It has been my experience that the students want to learn not only how to create a masterpiece but also enjoy learning about the famous artist and discussing their artwork. This type of education can provide these students with some knowledge that will empower them in the future.

My Project

This project will provide watercolor paints, acrylic paints, and paint brushes for the students. They will be able to share the materials to create masterpieces. Students will learn to use visual patterns, create works of art that teach perception when drawing and painting, and the students will be able to determine how the colors on the color wheel are created. They will be able to use texture in order to add interest to their art creations. Students will also work to describe and analyze the other elements of art such as shape, lines, and space.

This project is important for the students to be able to access the California Visual Arts Standards.

The students will gain knowledge that they would not be able to obtain on their own without the instruction and practice in the classroom. The students will be able to build confidence and gain a worldly knowledge base that will help them when they attend college and life beyond their educational careers. These students might even be the future creators for the Walt Disney Company.
