"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." My greatest hope as an art teacher is to foster of love of art that lasts a lifetime. My school is very fortunate to have children from 47 home countries and speak 33 different languages.
Art allows children to share and their cultural identity and point of views in a creative forum.
It also allows them to learn and have fun at the same time.
My school is located in Queens New York which is the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world. We are fortunate to have children and families from 47 home countries and 33 different languages. As an art teacher, I am thrilled to have the ability to work with these students and parents to foster a love for the visual arts. Approximately, 70 children are English Language Learners and communication can sometimes be an obstacle for them in the classroom.
iPads in the art room would support my ENL students to be able to become independent learners and take charge of their own learning.
An iPad can become a tool to translate, a camera, a book, and a drawing tool.
