My Students

We left school thinking we would be back in a week and never expected we would be distance learning for this extended period of time. My students are not creating with clay but are creating art with whatever resources they have at home. Because we left school so abruptly, I was not able to provide students with the necessary art supplies to complete assignments from home.

Students cannot go out to the store and purchase materials they need due to the pandemic and parents may not be able to purchase materials due to a lack of work at this time.

Most students have nothing but pencil and paper and are limited in what they can do. Despite this challenge I am seeing students engaged and doing their best with what they have.

My Project

It is stressful for many students to be at home trying to complete schoolwork without their teachers. There is nothing like that face to face interaction with a student to help them understand and complete assignments. I am amazed at how well my students are doing work on their own with limited resources.

I would like to be able to provide sketchbooks and drawing materials to students in need.

Most students do not have art materials at home, and they have limited options when it comes to creating assignments. Students often apologize for their work because they could not include color or didn't have a sheet of white paper to draw on. Having these materials would be encouraging for students, give them some creative options, and help them feel more confident.
