My Students

The art room is a place for my students to explore, create, build, question and learn. Every day is an adventure with these kiddos. Our students live in a low socio-economic neighborhood​ but have risen above their circumstances. Despite the obstacles of poverty, they persevere, overcome and constantly impress me. Art provides an outlet for my students to express themselves.

My students come into my room with a passion for art and a desire to learn.

Around six hundred students visit the art room every week. Whether it is making masks with pre-kindergarten students or painting one-point perspective with fifth graders, there is always something interesting going on in the art room.

My Project

Each month, I spend a lot of my own money on hand wipes and various classroom supplies. My art room has one tiny sink with a lot of students. You can imagine that it gets a little tricky when it comes to cleaning up messy little hands. I have found that baby wipes work well when cleaning up. Students wipe off their hands and then they wipe down the table. I also try to wipe down the tables with Lysol wipe every now and then. I want to maintain a clean environment for my students and prevent sickness as best as I can.
