My Students

Our school is a very rare middle school in the Houston area. We really are four schools in one: elementary school, middle school, a school for the Deaf, and a school for young students with multiple impairments.

I have been tasked to teach the students Fine Arts and give these students a way to express themselves outside of standard academics.

Our academics are extremely rigorous, so having a place for the students to creatively play is a great way to let off steam and manage stress. These students really are extremely creative and thoughtful young learners and they love it in our art room.

A lot of our students are interested in developing their drawing skills so that they can pursue a high school diploma at our local high school. We are very excited about helping them with this task.

My Project

I am an art teacher in Houston, TX who is working hard to create a happy and productive art classroom in a post Hurricane Harvey budget. My art room receives very minimal funding- enough to cover markers and pencils but not much else. But these kids really are so creative and intelligent and they long for more exciting artistic pursuits. I always strive to supply my students with more enriching, more inspiring supplies than the usual colored pencils and markers they honestly grow tired of. Printmaking, painting, and sculpture are all mediums that the kids are so excited to explore. It allows them enough experimentation and danger to really learn through actions and be excited about it. We are blessed to have a printmaking press but do not have very much in the way of supplies. Help us stock the printmaking cabinet!
