My students are enthusiastic about art and enjoy creating works of their own. I teach pottery and art to high school students in a small rural school district in Georgia where 100% of the students receive free breakfast and lunch.
My students like to try new things.
We moved into a new school last year and we are excited about our new space. One of my students suggested that we create artwork for some of the halls in the high school section of our K-12 school. I think this is a great idea, but we lack the supplies to work on the large scale needed for these spaces.
My students are accustomed to planning and producing their own individual works. They work by themselves and usually only collaborate with me. Working on paintings for the halls will give them a different experience. They will learn group skills as they plan and execute a project with a small group of their classmates.
These materials will allow them to take their works to a larger scale.
This project will allow them to work with paintings that are to be viewed at a distance. My students will also gain confidence as their work is on display for the rest of the school to view.
