My Students

Since the first grade, my students have been learning about the artist Vincent Van Gogh. We have talked about the various styles of impressionist painting. Through these art materials the students would have a wonderful learning experience of painting and becoming like Vincent Van Gogh.

My students are of low income and few middle class families.

Our school has 45% percent of students that qualify for free and reduced price lunches. These students live in a rural area. The only access they have to an art gallery of masters is the state capitol. So, what art education they do get is in their school. They constantly seek art and are always asking question about art posters I display in the art class. I teach my first graders about Van Gogh and his painting Starry Night. From that grade until the 5th grade these students always want more lessons of Van Gogh. My students are like sponges with their art lessons.

My Project

These art materials will lift my students' art education to a higher level. Having and working with the canvas and acrylic paint with give them knowledge of these mediums to create more art work. They will be familiar with the art world and an artist's way of life. These students will be able to make art for various programs in school. And, this will give them an opportunity to choose a career in the arts.

This project will not only create the familiarity of the art world to the children, but it will create their appreciation of the arts.

Please help my students have the opportunity to explore and experience the media of painting on canvas like the artist Van Gogh.
