I teach Pre-K through 2nd grade Art Education. I have been teaching art from a cart for two years. My students and I just received a new art room! Starting an art room from scratch should be fun, but help is needed! My students are from a diverse community which is a low-income/high poverty school district. Many students have never used markers, scissors, glue or paint before they come to school. Needless to say, these students are excited and eager to be able to use art materials.
Teaching Pre-K through 2nd allows me to share my creativity and passion for art while introducing these students to art materials.
Each one of my students loves exploring and experimenting with new materials. "Creativity is contagious, pass it on."- Albert Einstein. Creating a beautiful, colorful and creative space for my students to create art is my goal.
I love incorporating books into my lessons. I do not have a perfect spot to display all of the books that I work into my lessons. The display book shelf will make it so students could pick up a book and take a look when they have free time!
I would love for the students to be able to relax on beanbags chairs to read books that coincide with our lesson!
The new color blocked carpet will ensure that all students have their own space! The ability for each student to have their own space alleviates any problems that may occur otherwise.
