My Students

My students are bright, inquisitive, and excited to learn about art. I teach in an urban Title I school. My students range from grades Pre-K to 8 and they are the best kids, but the school operates on a tight budget and has little to no funding for art. It’s important to me that they have all the resources they need for class.

As their teacher and mentor, nothing would please me more than to just hand students the art supplies they need.

My Project

Cyanotype is a traditional alternative photographic process that requires treated paper, objects, the sun, and water to produce a cyan-blue print. They are super easy and lots of fun. This project will allow students to explore the basics of the photographic process by creating their own cyanotype print using found objects and their own artwork.

A cyanotype is a photographic print made by placing objects directly onto the light-sensitive paper and then exposing the paper to light.

For this project, students explore two seemingly different areas, art, and science. Research the history of science and photography and then create their composition using sunlight to “develop” their composition.

Since helping to build a visual arts curriculum from nothing at my high school, I have successfully grown an art program that rivals schools with larger budgets and more established programs. My goal is to develop an appreciation for the Visual Arts and create a space for the student to experience the learning process and in school.
