My Students

My students are from a rural community that serves a high population of at-risk students. More than three quarters of our students come from economically disadvantaged homes. It is extremely important to our community that our students receive educational opportunities. We are a STEM academy school, striving to improve in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This program is really taking off and students are excited to see the possibilities available to them.

Our students are hardworking and are dreaming about a bright future.

My Project

The materials in this project will be used for many different projects. Student needs canvases, paints, brushes, markers, and many other items for the art projects in the class.

Help us explore art through various projects in middle school art class.

We will be making canvases representative of our some of our favorite periods in history. We will also be trying out some cardboard cutting and layering projects. Students will be using acrylics, to create their own canvas creations. Watercolors will also be used this semester as we study some of the great and varied techniques used in painting. All these supplies will be used to broaden their knowledge of art techniques and art history.
