My Students

My students consist of artists ranging from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. My student are part of a rural community in central Florida with limited resources.

Learning through the integration of art is essential to my students' educational and personal growth as lifelong learners.

Art allows them to see the world through many different lenses. Nothing compares to the look a child gets when they have pride in something they have created. I strive to give my students the opportunity to achieve this experience each and every day.

My Project

This project combines the love of literacy and the creativity of art. The Native American resources, game and symbol poster, as well as ceramic materials will help integrate visual arts and literacy to give my students a genuine, hands-on art learning experience. Literacy helps paint a picture in our imagination.

In this case, students will mold a ceramic form inspired by literacy.

I love seeing the literacy inspired art my students create.

Your generous donation to this project will compliment the Native American pottery prints we currently have in our classroom and bring in the importance of literacy in the art content area.

Art is tied to all parts of life, and my students want to explore it all!
