Library for Elementary Art Classroom

My students need 25 books to help enhance and inspire lessons, teach art history, and help students learn to draw.

My Students

My classroom is a place where students are encouraged to explore artistically while making natural cross-curricular connections.

The 2015-2016 school year will be the first year that my school is open.

The school is projected to open with 1,200 students (all of whom I will teach), will have a high ESOL population, and will be a Title I school. While I haven't met my individual students yet, I do know that many of them are coming from homes where all of their needs may not be provided for. That inspires me to work that much harder to make sure that they are getting an amazing experience while at school.

My Project

My students need 25 books to help enhance and inspire lessons, teach art history, and help students learn to draw. The books donated to my classroom will be used in a number of ways. The picture books will be used to help students make literary connections to inspire their art projects. The how-to-draw books will be used as reference books to help students refine their drawing skills during their free time. The 'Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists' books will be used to help my students better understand the journey of artists who very well may have started out their lives in circumstances similar to my students.

Being able to use books in my art room not only incorporates literacy objectives (which certainly benefits all students - especially ESOL), but also provides heaps of inspiration for my students.
