My Students

I work at a high school where we have a diverse low-income population. My students struggle every day with issues that would surprise most people. Within this population, passion and drive help them to succeed but we need more tools to help them get there.

I'm in charge of the Multimedia Academy where I get to see students driven by their passion and overcome their daily obstacles.

Some go on to be professional artists and some walk away with the knowledge to appreciate art and the world around them.

My Project

We're in a situation we've never experienced before with conducting remote learning. Usually we can share supplies in the classroom so we don't have to purchase a lot of supplies. Even when we go back to the classroom I'm not sure how we are going to share supplies safely.

I want to give my students the chance to create art at home stress free with supplies they can't afford.

This will remove some of the anxiety about not having money for supplies and meeting the requirements of their IB Visual Art exam. I think it's important to help these students be successful in a time that is so uncertain for everyone.
