Building Skills in Cross Hatching and Pointallism

Help me give my students new sharpies to begin our upcoming pointillism, hatching, and cross hatching projects.

My Students

My students are amazing and a joy to work with. My school is a kindergarten though eighth grade charter school in Anchorage, Alaska. The students here are primarily Alaskan Native with ancestry in many Alaskan Native tribes including Tlingit, Haida, Unangan, Athabaskan, and many others.

My school's focus on cultural learning and native ways of knowing has inspired me to teach my students about Alaskan Native arts and culture.

I encourage my students to treat my classroom as their studio and a place where they are safe and free to express themselves. In this way, my students can not only learn about their rich and diverse culture, but they can also help to contribute to it.

My Project

My art students will be learning about various ways to create value changes in their artwork using inks and markers. Without the ability to vary the amount of pressure on their drawing device students must experiment with other techniques to create changes in value within their work. These supplies will aid them in this effort. My students are excited about to get started on this project and many have been practicing the underlying principles they will be using on the final project. Thank you for your help in giving my students the skills and supplies to express themselves though art.
