My Students

At our school, our students thrive in an environment where they experience open creativity and hands-on activities. Clay projects get junior high school students intensely interested and immediately involved.

Our students are FABULOUS!

Our 7 and 8th Grade Center is a traditional yet progressive junior high in an urban setting. Our student body consists of a very diverse 1230 students and there are more than 31 languages spoken in the homes of our students. Some challenges we face are that more than 25% of our students receive special education services and we have a universal free breakfast/lunch program. The LHC Art Department sees about 850 students in a year during 80 minute block classes. There are two, full-time, highly effective art teachers employed. One philosophy we share is that every student can learn to be expressive and communicate through through artistic and scholastic endeavors.

My Project

If you choose to support this request, you will supply enough quality glaze for our art department to use for a whole year. Students activate knowledge from several different content areas when they use clay as a medium. They begin to understand the science of turning mud to fragile stone during the firing process; the literacy of new, more descriptive vocabulary; and the habit of persistence as they idealize, revise, and produce a unique work of art. In 7th grade, students use clay to explore texture and create a 3D tile using the creation of a personal symbol and a spiral as their inspiration. They use the glaze to add color to make their artwork even more expressive. 8th grade student artists create a decorative coil vessel. As students use the coil building technique, they must build an artwork that is at least 4" tall, holds something, and is constructed of coils that stay together. Glaze is added to seal the clay for food use and to add color.

The students who attend our 7th & 8th Grade Center need enriching, hands-on project that teach them how to creatively solve a problem and create a successful outcome.

Many of our students do not have life-enriching opportunities or experiences beyond the school day. By supporting this request for supplies, you will help open young minds to new possibilities and creative experiences.
