My Students

An awesome group of sweet, dedicated artists ready to be creative in the art classroom. Sculpture is a powerful way to create while learning the cultural background of this art form, giving respect to the source of this project. Santa Rosa is a suburban area in Northern California.

We are still recovering from the recent Santa Rosa fires and art has become crucial in the healing process.

We have 12-13 year old students who love painting, drawing and sculpture to experience creativity.

My Project

Dream catchers are a beautiful way to create sculpture that has deep cultural and healing connections. Using wire and leather and beads and feathers to create something that stops bad dreams.

The concept of creating a dream catchers to catch the bad dreams fits in well with our community and students.

Bringing a way to access deep sleep through art will be inspiring to many students who struggle with sleep issues. Loss of sleep from the fires causes trauma to a tired brain. Any project that brings peace to this deserving group will be meaningful.

These sculptures are beautiful to look at while teaching valuable sculpture creating skills.
