Art - The Process and Dealing with Our Feelings.

My Students

This will be my 36th year of teaching. And my third year of having the opportunity to teach our 4, 5, 6 Highly Capable classroom. Each year we study different content. This year we are studying sixth-grade content, along with an environmental emphasis.

Along with being Highly Capable, anxiety and a need to always succeed can get in the way.

Helping my students recognize their feelings and how to work through those feelings (being intuitive) is a lifelong skill. They are creative, kind and so very smart. We're a classroom with a need to accomplish many things, but we're trying to make smart decisions that help us be the best we can be.

My Project

Today's students have so many responsibilities and Highly Capable Students tend to struggle with anxiety and expectations they put on themselves.

This project will give me the opportunity to work through some intuitive art processes with my students.

The canvas, is our blank slate. We will begin walking through an art project and discuss our feelings and expectations as we work. Surprise changes will happen along the way and stress will be added to the scenario. We'll discuss how they feel. how they can work through this process, and how they might apply working through their feelings in other situations as they are in this situation. Our purpose is to grow in "how" we work through anxiety and stress throughout our educational process.
