I teach a Second grade class with 20 students. I have a classroom with students who have mixed abilities and very different learning styles.
Trying to incorporate visual arts curriculum and connect it with California state standards can be a difficult task. I would like to bring the creativity and joy back to my students and allow them to express themselves through art.
However, the materials needed for our integrative art program are not budgeted for in our school district funding sources. We will need to have outside assistance to acquire these much appreciated items and to allow our creative minds to work.
Art can tie into all the core curriculum areas, including math, science, language arts and history. I would like my students to have many avenues for expressing what they know and feel. We need a place for their art work to dry properly and for me to cut mats for framing their masterpieces. When a child's art is properly displayed, they can take great pride in their accomplishments. They can also use art projects as a vehicle for expressing what they have learned.
The materials we would like to request are: a drying rack and a paper cutting system. We would like to stock our art center with new paint brushes and interesting textured tools for added interest to our artwork.
Please help us get our integrative art program off to a good start! We cannot wait to begin the year with a burst of color and expression!
