My Students

The students I work with are always excited when it comes to new ideas involving their creativity, expression and engagement in the art room. Having the opportunity to experiment with different materials while exploring various ways to express themselves, and using critical thinking skills to engage active learning is what my students are all about! With their enthusiasm, they continue to inspire me daily as an educator!

With such bright, imaginative and compassionate personalities, my students truly value their time spent in the art room.

Being a teacher at a K-8 Title I school, the majority of families are supported heavily by what they have in their school and community. Allowing these students the chance to come into the comfort of their classroom to visualize and create their thoughts and ideas brings immense appreciation. Whether it be made with a simple material like crayons which some students only have access to at school, or more complex like clay, something they will cherish as they've never been introduced to it before. As a first year teacher, these amazing students have made a lasting memory on me as they continue to show the outstanding power of embracing our unique creativity within.

My Project

Giving my students the opportunity to continue their educational experience as artists is what this project is about! Everyday, my students are engaged in the art room when it comes to creating and thinking critically. With practice on using various materials, whether it be Sharpies, Tempera paints or just drawing paper, they will continue to experience and understand the similarities and differences between the varieties of mediums.

Giving my students the chance to create with materials such as watercolor paints and paper, will enable them the freedom to experiment with new materials while also comparing and contrasting what they've used in the past.

This will open a new door to artistic opportunities for each of my students.

With unfamiliar materials to be used and explored, it will allow my students to continue on expanding their knowledge and prosper to become brilliant artists!
