My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions!

What I admire about them is that they come to school each day ready to learn new things and take on great challenges in order for them to continue growing.

Their curiosity keeps me on my toes, which is great! To able to provide them fulfilling projects would be absolutely amazing.

My Project

The students no longer have an art teacher so I have been supplementing art lessons. In this lesson, the students will create a self-portrait in a folk art style using a simplified line, shapes, and patterns. They will use a variety of materials to create bold, bright, colorful folk art in the style of Heather Galler.

By donating to this project, you will help give students quality art supplies in order to have the artistic opportunity to express themselves.

Folk art tells something about the person who created it, about their life, their family or culture.

This project would be great because it addresses a variety of artistic skills because the style is so simplified. It's very basic in that it only requires lines and shapes to make their unique masterpiece.
