A day in the art studio is full of creativity and learning. My students will be creating spaces within their art room that is filled with alternative seating and accessories. These items will be painted by the students by representing their favorite artists and incorporating their own ideas. We are super excited to think about the possibilities of the art room being filled with their own works of art. It will be an inviting and welcoming space as they come to the room for each class.
My favorite quote is "Every child is an artist; the problem is staying an artist when you grow up." Most are from low income families where creating art and having supplies is not an option for them.
My school helps to teach students to be responsible, respectful and safe. We encourage further education by preparing our students for the future.
Students will use paint supplies to paint their furniture and accessories to help to make their art studio a place that feels inviting and safe.
Students will use the paint and brushes to re-do old furniture and accessories. They will be researching various artists to learn about the artist and also incorporate their own creative thoughts in their designs.
Students will be working within a group to achieve the goal of painting the tables, chairs and accessories.
Their individual ideas will be presented to their groups and they will then work together to present one idea. This idea will be sketched on their furniture which will then be painted by the students.
This opportunity to create their own welcoming art studio will be a fabulous opportunity for them to learn and express their ideas in an work of art.
