My classroom is a shared space with the music teacher and is located in a mobile located outside of the main school building. A very limited supply budget makes introducing and engaging my unique group of students a challenge.
Each week, I encourage all of my K-2 and 3-5 Life-Skills students to become artists as we focus on different elements of art.
Students are given opportunities to explore how art materials and different tools can make marks. We create lines and shapes and then use them as ingredients to create our masterpieces!
We are a Title 1 school. My K-2 LifeSkills Art class is understaffed. We need more 1:1 attendants to be hired to meet the needs of our students. I am doing the BEST I can for these students, but we just don't have the needed resources.
I look forward to using these new art supplies to enrich the learning experiences of my artists. The Wikki Sticks, rollers and scrappers will definitely add excitement to our creative experiences each week.
The "Look What I Make Frames" are a fabulous way for us to showcase our masterpieces in the hallway for others in the school to appreciate without being worried that they might be damaged.
I love how they are reusable and have a clear protective layer almost like putting them in a REAL glass frame. It will look so cool to have a mini art gallery hung at their eye level.
