My Students

I teach visual arts concepts and skills to over 600 students in kindergarten through fifth grade at a Public K-8 Charter School. My students are fun loving and strive to be kind. They take a genuine interest in their learning and like to celebrate successes.

Although my students are diverse in ethnicity and cultural backgrounds, they are all passionate learners who love hands on projects that empower them to create art.

These young artists are problem solvers who appreciate the power of choice. They love to collaborate and make connections with other disciplines and the visual arts.

In my opinion, considering the high-tech world we live in today, my students would benefit from more exposure to technology related activities in school. Please help them to flourish in their school learning and lifetime learning by partnering with me to support their educational needs.

My Project

My students love to add vivid color to their works of art using permanent markers. They appreciate the even finish and the rich hues they can experience when adding the element of color with this particular medium. However, the few sharpie markers my 650 students inherited from another art teacher are quickly drying out.

With your support of donating new sets of sharpie markers for our art classroom, my students will be empowered to expand their art learning about the color wheel and add color to their artworks with a medium other than crayons.

The finer points or nibs that sharpie markers provide will enable students to flourish in their abilities to create detail, expression and emphasis in their artworks.
