A typical day in our classroom consists of the students gathering at the carpet for morning meeting. After morning meeting, students choose their center in which they will learn and explore. We would like to open a 3-dimensional sculpture center...Empowering Students Through Art.
Our school is a Title 1 school, where most students receive free school lunch.
We do not have the resources to provide the necessary art/literature materials needed for this project. Our students would benefit from these resources, because not only could they be creative and make sculptures, they will also learn about Social Studies. Therefore, Empowering Students Through Art in a hands on way, with art materials and literature.
We will use the non-fiction books about women in history to teach our students about important historical figures, who also happen to be women. The students will then use the requested plaster of paris and adhesive jewels to create sculptures based on what they have learned from the Social Studies texts. These sculptures will then be showcased during an art exhibition for Women's History Month. The only limit of what they can make is in their imagination...Empowering Students Through Art!
This project will not only make a difference in our students' lives, it will also make a difference in parents' and other students' lives.
This art exhibition is a true example of Empowering Students Though Art! Showcasing students artwork will make our home/school connection even stronger! Please help us teach Pre-K about important women in history!
