My Students

Perhaps the most endearing and fulfilling parts of my job is being in the presence of young people who are wholly unafraid of being themselves. Here at our arts magnet school, diversity and difference are embraced and celebrated in a way I have yet to see anywhere else. Between the student-run fashion shows, new student buddy programs, Halloween extravaganzas, LGBTQ+ pride parades, clubs of all kinds, theater productions, recitals, and gallery shows, our campus is always teeming with life and color, brimming to capacity with some of the most brilliant people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Student life at our institution encourages thinking and being outside of the box while providing rigorous training and a well-rounded education in both artistic and academic fields.

My kids think and dream big.

They want to be doctors, animators, product designers, engineers, biologists, teachers, fine artists, chefs, writers, fashion editors, graphic designers, children's book authors, politicians, advocates, and the list is alive, expanding every day as students discover latent pockets of potential. It is my sincerest hope that students leave my class knowing something about themselves that they didn't know before and feeling like they are that much closer to their goals.

My Project

It's expensive to operate an art class serving more than 40 people with supplies of a quality they deserve, and to do so for more than 9 months. This is especially true when every students' individual journey and needs will be slightly different! In the standards set forth by the AP Art and Design curriculum, students are expected to complete 5 pieces that reflect exploration with materials and ideas, and anywhere from 5 to 10 works related to a point of inquiry or theme.

With 10 to 15 artworks per student (at a minimum) and 40 students enrolled in the class, we will need materials to create more than 600 works of art this year!

Every cent you contribute ensures that the material needs are met for all 40 students in the the course so that they can focus on creating amazing works of art rather than worrying about funding their vision.
