My Students

My sixth grade students attend a Title I school in Southern California. Many of my students live in government-funded housing. They all qualify for the free federal lunch program. A few of my students also receive special education support services.

As sixth graders, they have a myriad of interests and abilities that are developing as they become closer to high school and pull away from elementary school.

All of them are inquisitive and come prepared to learn every day. They enjoy learning and get inspired by what we read and do in class.

My Project

I want to be sure that students do not lose opportunities to explore works of art, art concepts and hands-on art making. In the past I have been somewhat reluctant to do much art in the classroom. For the last couple of years, I have been developing my ability integrate art into the curriculum.

Teaching art takes time, patience, and supplies.

I have the first two but I need help with the supplies I will need to give my students the art lessons I have planned. An art journal is essential for them to record art vocabulary, thoughts and ideas. It is a portable way to teach art concepts in any location. I hope by the end of the school year, my students will be more comfortable expressing themselves through art. I also hope that they will find new appreciation for works of art from ancient times to the modern periods.
