My Students

Our students love a challenge. A typical day in the classroom is very busy with many students coming in and out of my art classroom. The students are always engaged through using critical thinking skills to solve problems that come up when creating something new.

Our school is going on its third year and we proud ourselves on being GREEN from the renovated gym building we are in, recycling programs we have, and the many skylights that have been put in place to conserve energy.

We are also a GREEN Step school curriculum. The school is focused on learning and using renewable energy. Our students are very diverse in culture but are united for one common goal. That goal includes being involved with our GREEN efforts and our high standards in academics. The students are encouraged in my art class to use their critical thinking skills, learn that a problem can have more then one answer, and learn by making something out of nothing.

My Project

Students love creating art using paint in the classroom. The students will be using the requested Chromatemp Tempera Paints, white tag boards and brushes to create a variety of art projects. The primary colors paint will be a useful tool when we explore color theory and how color affects our day-to-day lives. My second grade students will be doing a whole unit on color. They will use the different primary paint colors to understand and explore how color affects not just their artwork, but daily life. Students love the hands-on experience that paint provides.

My students need these painting supplies to get hands-on experience with color.

For some students the art room is the only place where they are able to get messy and creative with paint.
