Art... It's a Whole Brainer!

Help me give my students materials to recreate their own artist-inspired works created in multiple different mediums as we explore different artists; all while they develop their own artistic styles through their own self-expression.

My Students

My students are bright, curious, blooming artists that seek to learn different art styles while using different art mediums. They study art history to see where art began and how it has come to be by today's standards.

My students get an opportunity to build their self-confidence and apply their academic skills all while developing their own individual art styles.

They work hard; they learn history, develop math and science skills, research their ideas, and apply what they have learned to create some beautiful and inspiring works of art. Through art, they learn more about themselves and who they want to be.

COVID-19 has brought a lot of emotional stress and hardships to my students. While I may not be able to physically change the world around them to make it easier and better for them, I can teach them art. I can teach them to find beauty in what is around them. I can teach them skills to safely express their emotions and to help them cope with these inconsistent waters that we are all currently navigating.

My Project

Studies have shown that art can tap into multiple components of the brain. Creating art can activate academic components such as reading, math, science, social studies, and more. Art can also improve one's mental health and allow healthy forms of self-expression.

The requested resources will allow me to provide opportunities to support my art students as they navigate through these pandemic times both academically and socially/emotionally.

This project will also allow me to teach coping skills and provide coping activities to strengthen my student's responses to this ever-changing world.

Students will be given different artists to study. Artist study included lectures, history of time period and location of study, reading, and research. Then we will recreate artworks through different mediums. Through the recreation, we apply math skills (geometric/organic shape identifications, ratios, balance, proportions, etc.) and science skills (predictions of medium applications, mixing of primary colors to create needed colors, cause, and effect, how different materials interact with each other).

And throughout this entire process, we will be building confidence in our art skills by going out of our artistic boundaries and trying new mediums, and learning new techniques and strategies to create beautiful works of art that we can be proud of and share with our families and community members. We also reflect on our finished works to discuss what we liked about the projects, what we didn't like about it, and what we would do differently if we were to do it again.

We encompass art as it touches and opens every component of our brains. We activate art, we learn from art, and we apply art to our ever-changing world. Through this, we find the good, we focus on the good, and we create the good.
