Diversity and inclusion is the mantra that drives each member of our school's staff. Our students' ethnic roots span the globe; Turkish, Russian, Ukraine, Spanish, African American, and many more. Here we see every skin color and many dialects and yet we all come together to work for common understanding. This marriage of backgrounds expands into our curriculum. While we emphasize a strong scientific base we also integrate this with the arts and humanities. The artists become scientists and the scientists discover creativity through the arts. Many of my students struggle with learning, social and emotional disabilities. The economic background is wide and includes many students on the free and reduced-price lunch program.
At our school students strive to develop the intellectual, linguistic, cultural, interpersonal, and advocacy skills needed to succeed in a global future.
They nurture each other through clubs, after school projects, activities and a hope squad whose student members are trained to intervene for a peer in crisis.
They win awards in Robotics, host a yearly STEM fest, win art contests, display great musical abilities and last year our 6th graders beat out Juniors and Seniors in H.S. Utah Entrepreneur Challenge.
As students learn to draw they begin to perceive FORM in many ways. The face is one of the most familiar forms they have experienced all their lives. They learn very young to draw facial features symbolically - a circle with a dot inside symbolizes the eyes, a curved line is the mouth and the nose is symbolized in so many different ways.
As Students learn to draw they learn to FACE these preconceived symbols of drawing and see things more realistically.
These models will help them through this transition. They will explore the realism of the face visually and tactically.
We will use spotlights to emphasize the shadows. In this way they will see more clearly how to shade the features. Getting to know these features more up close and personal with these models will help them to translate these principles into all their work. Your help in supporting this project will make such a difference in the way students not only view their artistic abilities but also how they understand form in art and in all other subjects.
