My Students

The visual arts are a place of discovery and learning. The goal of my classes is to engage the students in the creative process and let them know of the much larger art world outside our doors, to enter galleries and know how and why a piece of work was created. We live in an artistic world; my job is to help the students better interpret that.

My students come from a wide variety of diversified backgrounds and live in Oklahoma City.

Although I might sound biased, we truly have some of the greatest kids around. They are excited to learn new techniques and not afraid to voice their opinions on life. My students take great pride in both our school and their community.

My Project

My students are just now beginning their high school art journey. The difficulty comes when we need supplies to further hone those skills. Budget cuts have all but cut off school funding and our meager remaining funds have left us having to make due with alternate materials. While that is part and parcel with the arts it does make for a lack in truly learning the artistic process.

I am wanting to get a life size anatomical drawing mannequin as well as 12 inch models.

Drawing from a model is a main stay in any drawing class. By getting a life size mannequin my students will be able to better understand anatomy. A mannequin is much more then a simple wooden doll. It enables the artist to see in a three dimensional space. Being able to see it move and adapt on the table helps the student learn basic form.

The goal of this project is to help further my students understanding of drawing and the human anatomy. These materials will all be used greatly.
