My Students

My lovely students are hardworking and passionate about art and so creative they can only be described as "inspired". We make art and need the tools to do it! Markers run out of ink, glue sticks run out of glue and construction paper gets used in countless ways and needs to be replaced. Help us make next year even better than the previous years with materials that inspire creativity and encourage students to grow.

I teach the dreamers of our school and with your help, we can provide these artists with supplies needed to transform those visions into tangible works of art.

I work with all of the visual art students in our school, but all students are welcome in the art studio. Students visit the art room when they are having a bad day because they know something exciting and inspiring will be going down each period, every day. Your donation will assist with providing materials to ensure there is always enough room for one more in our space for students to feel safe and create.

My Project

Through a historical framework, my students will examine the significance of art in different cultures and explore relationships between art and literature by learning the ancient art of marbling. Marbling, or "Suminagashi", first practiced in the twelfth century in Japan and later made popular in Europe in the seventeenth century, is a beautiful process that creates exquisite results. It is inherently interesting as it is process oriented and often creates surprising outcomes. We are asking for materials to rediscover this process at our school.

Students will examine art making techniques of different cultures, make connections with art in history and literature, create a series of projects and ultimately, make books we will sell to support our underfunded department.

With these reusable tools, we will create several different marbled projects that can be sold at an art auction to restock our almost empty shelves in the art closet. This cross-curricular unit will expose students to a variety of knowledge that will be ingrained by the fond memories of exploring "making" using ancient techniques. We will experiment and document our progress while researching literature of the culture that created it. With these materials, we can create art that will be sold to support our future creations. All the projects will teach students new skills leading to the concluding objective of creating original journals that will be auctioned in the Spring.

Help us help ourselves by providing the supplies needed to learn about this awesome ancient technique and in the process, make art that will create funds for our department.
