My Students

What I love most about my students is their excitement and enthusiasm when they enter the art room. Art crosses all backgrounds and abilities to bring people together. My students embody the powerful impact art has in creating creative critical thinkers who look to and shape the world in new ways each day. In the art room I have witnessed them take creative risks and explore their own imaginations to surprise themselves.

Our Title I school provides students with a respectful school climate where the student comes first, academic and artistic achievement is sought, cultural and linguistic diversity is honored, and all learners have the tools they need to discover and fulfill their potential.

My Project

My artists will be using the Speedball Underglazes to glaze their ceramics creations with vibrant colors. Clay is one of my students' favorite mediums to work in. The tactile nature of clay piques the interest and imagination of all ages. Glazing is another story for some students. Typical glazes are difficult for some students to brush on their work consistently, and they lack the ability to add fine details.

These underglazes will allow artists to add significantly more detail to ceramic work while giving them more control versus regular clay glazes.

Underglazes brush onto bisqueware like paint and are easy to mix, allowing for artists to utilize their painting techniques when glazing. From kindergarten pumpkin pinch pots inspired by Yayoi Kusama to sixth grade slab self-portrait busts, these underglazes would be put to good use.
