My Students

My students have a never ending desire to create!

They love engaging projects and challenges that allow them to explore new ideas through art.

Art matters because it gives each student the opportunity to share their uniqueness with others.

They come to art class each week excited and ready to take chances in order to grow as an artist. I connect the art lesson with something they are learning in their academic class allowing each student to explore academic content through art! I am so proud of them. They are my inspiration!

My Project

With a well stocked cabinet of art paper I get the chance to help my students open up their imagination and let them explore a variety of media. Creativity leads the way in my classroom. Unfortunately with limited supplies my kids feel limited in what they can create.

My kids have a never ending desire to CREATE!

They need a variety of paper to draw, paint, fold, and sculpt with. Paper is often forgotten but it is the basis of many of my students' art.

"All art is but dirtying the paper delicately." quote from John Ruskin. Help us dirty up all this paper!
