My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching the only art class at my middle school and my students are EATING THIS CLASS UP! When sharing about my "Cre8" students, these words come to mind: Eager. Opportunistic. Creative. Energetic. Joyful. Clever. Real. Reflective.

They love the challenge and freedom of the space we have cultivated in our "Cre8" class.

A space where they can exercise their creative muscles in planning and designing beautiful pieces of artwork. In my class, students can relax and settle into an atmosphere that fosters learning and growth in a more non-traditional way.

Art can change a person's perspective and the way they experience the world. This is my goal: that my students would not only improve in their art skills, but that they would see their world through a new lens—a lens of possibility!

My Project

The materials and supplies I am requesting on behalf of my Cre8 students, will be used to broaden their art experience. With improved supplies, I can offer a wider scope of learning as we dive into the world of clay and ceramics and watercolor painting.

Following the elements of art and the principles of design as our guide, students will be able to access more advanced levels of art through project-based learning utilizing the new and improved art supplies.

Some of new art projects will include: coil and pinch pots, ceramic sculptures, mugs and houseware, watercolor portraits, watercolor landscapes, and watercolor abstract pieces.

Thank you for considering a donation to make these new works of art possible for my Cre8 students. We appreciate your willingness to partner with us as we venture into the wide world of art!
