My Students

My classes are filled with wonderful and compassionate students who are trying to make their school and community a better place for everybody! They attend a small school in a very rural farming community. The students and school are plagued by the poor economics of the area and the continual lessening of funds provided by the state.

Despite these situations, these students want to succeed, and we need to fully prepare them to meet the world!

I must commend their courage and compassion for learning and try to provide them with what they need.

My Project

My students have explored making art that is larger than life, and now it is time to explore the tiny side of art. My students will use the tiny canvases and easels to create meaningful art on a very small scale. The different kinds of magnifiers will allow them to experiment and find which type works best for them as an artist.

"Great things are done by a series of small things brought together," said Vincent Van Gogh.

Students will use the enlargers to create beautiful, fully detailed art that will amaze the viewers. The display will be put up in the school library for everyone to see!
