My Students

My students are middle school students in grades 6 in a 6-12 grade school. The student population is diverse and we have recently moved to distance learning through the google classroom platform. My students share a common interest in sports and medical science.

They also enjoy creating a variety of art projects and look forward to working on their art projects daily.

My students are working from home and may not have many art materials to work with when trying to engage in creative activities. My students need to continue to have positive, learning experiences where they can be creative and make work that is meaningful to them.

My Project

My art students are taking art classes from home. All of the students may not have access to a variety of materials/ art media within their homes. These drawing books will allow them to engage in a variety drawing activities that will be assigned and turned in their art Google classroom.

My students will create digital sketchbooks.

These instructional drawing books will help me provide them with resources to turn to that illustrate step by step instructions that they can follow at home if they choose. The instructional drawing books will allow me to provide a variety of subject matter that the students will be able to explore as they add weekly drawings to their digital copy of their sketchbook.
