I am the visual arts teacher at our school. I teach all the students in our school K-5th grade. I love the diversity and cultures represented at our school! I am always excited to see the students come to art with great enthusiasm. Sometimes they even cheer when I open my door to welcome them into my classroom!
I love to see the awesome creative abilities of the students!
There is a lot of artisit talent in my school. I am always so happy to see kids that may struggle in other subjects at school excel in art! (Many times that is the one place they can truly feel successful!) I always say that I have the best job in the school!
I love to integrate my art projects with the things the kids are learning in the classroom. I also love to teach about famous artists.
Many of the students in my school don't even own a box of crayons or other art supplies.
I will be teaching my students about the famous artist, Claude Monet. We sill study several of his art works with emphasis on his beautiful paintings of waterlilies. We will talk about the colors he uses and his painting style.
We will make our own waterlily paintings by first drawing several waterlilies on a page, coloring the waterlilies with oil pastels and then doing a watercolor wash over the entire picture using the Alphacolor Biggies watercolor paint cakes.
I have done similar projects in the past and they have turned out beautiful! I know my students will love using these Alphacolor Biggies paints!
