My Students

My students are a wonderful, energetic group of elementary-aged students that come from various backgrounds. They are excited when they come to school, and they are always eager to learn and explore new things. Their motivation and enthusiasm for the arts is exciting. They are kind and considerate to one another in the art room.

My students enjoy the arts and they thrive in a creative, colorful, safe environment!

I am trying to create a safe, kind, and exciting classroom.

My Project

A painting center in our classroom would allow many opportunities for teaching and exploring. Students will be introduced to various materials such as: acrylic techniques, watercolor techniques kids, paint set up ideas, painting in the choice based classroom. The paints requested will be the start of building a painting center.

The Art room is a place where students can go to express their feelings, ideas, and be creative!

Students can learn and develop skills in all learning domains (language, literacy, math, science, social studies, fine motor, gross motor, and social skills) through art.
