My Students

My students live in an inner-city struggling through issues of language barriers, crime, violence, and poverty, but despite it all, they foster and maintain a high level of hope and pride in their city.

The culture of the community is highly creative and expressive in many aspects of the arts, from visual arts to theater, from music to dance.

The people and students here support and embrace the creative arts unlike many wealthier areas, and the people shine very brightly because of it.

My Project

My students have requested an assortment of skin tones in colored pencils, watercolor paper, inks and paints, brushes, and glitters to create bold and bright portraits.

Given the opportunity and quality materials, my students shine and thrive when creating several stunningly detailed yet simplified portraits of people they hold dear in their lives.

Some students create images of friends or family members while others create images of sports or music legends.

Each student will create a long term portrait in the materials of their choice, and compose a written statement about their selection and the creative process used during the project.
