My Students

Our students have a greater understanding when projects are supported with art. In an inclusion classroom, using different avenues to teach students with special needs is supported through using various media's in art.

Our school is a charter school in Hawaii.

Our students love to explore the unique different climatic zones, the environment is used to educate children in the community. From Ocean to Summit, exploring unique ecosystems, identifying native plants and animals, and discovering how invasive and introduced plants and animals have changed Hawaii's ecosystem.

My Project

In using exploratory environmental learning, students illustrate animals, marine life, habitats, and landscapes. Students need water color paints that are used with mixed media to produce brilliant art work. Their illustrations support research projects presented to peers and family. The art is scanned to create a card series that fundraiser support for local conservation groups locally. Paints are used in our book making, as we illustrate local legends learned. An example: students explored tide pools, observing sea creatures and identified their attributes. They illustrate a sea animal in its natural habitat, in technology class they research information, create a report and present, vibrant watercolors enhance their presentations inspiring their peers. Mixed media is used, the water color creates work that the local gallery will display with their quarterly exhibits. Children are proud of their accomplishments, water color paints build self-esteem.

In the community, we target different conservation groups to support their services in saving native birds, turtles, etc.... The students are able to learn about and support animals that are endangered.

Through art, students are able to make donations to local groups from the art they create. Their work is turned into cards, and donations benefit various groups.
