My Students

I teach 6-8 grade fine arts students. For some students this will be their second year of art, but for most, it will be their first exposure to fine arts. Hurricane Harvey devastated many of our students and staff member's lives, causing lost homes, clothing, and displacement. Our community is still suffering the ripple effect of such losses.

Students are looking forward to building their skills in drawing and applying the elements and principles of design in there own artworks.

These sketchbooks will also serve as interactive notebooks to record notes, doodles, and vocabulary.

My Project

Most students choose art for a preferred elective due to their interest in drawing or learning to draw. Drawing is a learned skill, and is developed and improved through daily practice and exploration. Sketchbooks are a great tool for both students and teachers to assess improvements and identify areas where support is needed.

These sketchbooks will provide a place for my students to take notes during lessons, practice drawing daily, and store essential knowledge about Art practices, styles, history, culture, and criticism.

The pens, pencils, markers and erasers will assist students in recording information and ideas. They also provide a variety of media for the students to explore in their drawing practices.
