Lift Up the Visual Arts
Help me give my students stools that are the appropriate height to reach the work tables in my visual arts classes.
Our school is located in a rural county in southern West Virginia. My students come from a variety of backgrounds, however over 90% of the students that attend our school come from low income households. Many of them have never traveled outside of our state due of limited resources at home.
My students are excited to learn new things and to have hands-on experiences.
They love to use different mediums in their artwork and learn about other cultures. They enjoy having their artwork displayed throughout the school and are excited to receive recognition for their efforts.
The Visual Arts are a fundamental part of every child's education. Many of the skills and concepts that are learned through the visual arts are crucial to understanding concepts in the core curriculum areas as well. An example of this collaboration would be, the overlap between our tessellations project and the study of geometry. In order for my students to be able to create these collaborative and creative projects they need appropriate seating to comfortably reach the work tables in our classroom. Many of our old chairs are broken and cannot be adjusted to the correct height. The chairs that are not completely broken are unstable and often lower despite being locked into the correct height. As a result, many of my students cannot properly reach the work surface to complete their projects.
