My Students

My students encounter hurdles that are out of their control due to limited financial resources and a variety of home languages. They come to class daily wanting to learn but we don't always get to delve as deeply into our subject because of a lack of materials.

My school is innovative and passionate, with a bright future ahead.

Although resources may lacking in the art room, my students never lack the determination, courage, or tenacity it takes to grow as artists.

I have yet to encounter more inspiring, creative, and intelligent students that embody the spirit of the creative process.

My Project

Help us take our murals to the next level! Currently mural production is slow and we are limited in the scope and size of murals we can produce. With this portable digital projector we can swiftly and easily transfer our mural designs to any surface and location on campus.

Public art gives students voice and choice through expressing big ideas while influencing school culture.

My students are not only skilled and talented artists, they have meaningful messages to express through their art. Murals allow my students to share their talents and views with our learning community while beautifying our campus.
