My Students

Smoke Rise Elementary School is a Title I school serving a small community in Georgia. Though it be little, the students are fierce and tenacious about learning.

Smoke Rise students are warm and bright.

They are eager to learn about art and learn different processes of making art. Learning about art expands the students' world view. Making art improves the students' problem solving skills and allows them to exercise their creativity. Support for the Smoke Rise Art Program helps my students develop these skills.

My Project

My students are active learners and love to move when we make art together. We like projects when we can shake, splatter, and roll to make art. The book, Action Art, Will give us more ideas how to learn about art to be active and be moving while they are making art. The materials on the list are needed to do the projects in the book. That includes the paper, crayons, markers, color sticks, rubber bands, rollers, boxes (classroom organizers), and paint scrapers. For example, instead of sitting still in our seats, we can stand, place a paper in the bottom of the box, put two colors of pain on two marbles, place the marbles in the box and roll them around to make a new color. This technique requires a lot more movement than mixing colors with a brush. It helps kinetic learners remember two colors make a new color more effectively.

Donating to this project will promote physical activity in our art room.

The students are in Art at least 45 minutes per week. Doing the 'Action Art' activities in Art Class will contribute these minutes to the goal of students being active 60 minutes a day.

We learn to be creative by being innovative with materials. The students in the younger grades really want to learn kinetic ways to make art. Painting in a seat at a table is well and good, but painting with rubber bands and rollers, and spinning markers using CDs is so much more active and fun! Help us add physical activity to our 45 minute art class and stretch our creativity muscles!
