My Students

"Creativity takes courage." - Henri Matisse My students need opportunities to develop their own creative style. I look forward to empowering my students through art!

I teach an amazing group of third grade magnet students.

They are enthusiastic, creative, focused, and enjoy a hands-on approach to learning. They share my two passions: the arts and the environment. My students attend school in a low income area. The entire school is on a free breakfast and lunch program.

My Project

Our current Language Arts unit is "Express Yourself". I am requesting art canvases and acrylic paints so my students can develop their own creative style while studying the life and works of different masters. For this project, my students will delve into the lives of different artists and explore the impact they made on our world. Then each student will focus on one artist and one masterpiece. They will create their own masterpiece by sketching on the canvas and painting with the acrylics.

In June 2012, I requested my first set of 9x12 canvas panels, brushes, and acrylic paints.

That project opened doors for art in my classroom. Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, I've requested and received canvases ever since. Many of my former students commented that they felt like real artists while painting on canvas using acrylics and professional brushes! Thank you for Empowering Students Through Art! I'm excited to see how the study of the masters will impact my students.
