My Students

Living in a rural town, many of the students of the school live in small communities of houses, or rent apartments. The school has a mix ethnically. Many families have moved up here after living in New York City and establishing themselves in the United States.

These students have big hearts and open minds.

I hope to use the art room as a tool to further students' interests.

Many students do receive assistance for school lunches, and many families rely on the school for assistance throughout the school year. Additionally, there is a large population of English Language Learners at the school.

My Project

I hope to get durable reusable looms for the classroom. Each year, I try a textile based project with my classes. Younger students start with paper weaving, but I like to challenge my older students with weaving with yarn. I would like to provide the students with durable consistent looms rather than creating looms out of recycled or found materials that may break or rip.

I would like to provide students with the ability to create small tapestries in the art classroom.

We tried circular weaving with plates, and while fun it made weaving much more difficult. (And all the circular weaving tended to fold in more like a nest or basket.) I would like to teach my students fiber crafts to broaden their knowledge of different art forms.
