My Students

I work in a Title I school in Rural East Texas teaching Art to grades 7 & 8. I want to provide my students with an art education that will help them grow and succeed. Teaching Art helps students build self-esteem and open up their world. They become risk takers, use critical thinking and their imaginations. Skills learned through Art will help them in all subject areas. My students deserve the chance to expand their capabilities through their knowledge of Art.

My Project

My Students are wanting to make a mural! An Amazing Zentangle Mural! For This project my students will create a large scale painting on the Canvas rolls requested. We will do some sketches and small paintings using the Bamboo Lyre Easel, Canvas Boards, paint and brushes on this collaborative multi-class art project.

My students are so excited about creating a Mural for our school!

So often we work on small scale projects. It will be refreshing to try something new and work on a large scale work of art. With this project students will be challenged to draw and paint outside their comfort zone, while using a style that most are comfortable with, Zentangles.

My students are so excited to get started. Let's Paint!
