My Students

My students attend a suburban school right outside of Columbia, SC. We have a very diverse population. These students represent all different races, genders, and income populations. As a member of this community, I live among them, and am so proud to be a member of this community.

Theatre is being offered to my students for the first time in a while this upcoming school year.

Theatre is an inclusive fine arts that welcomes all students. I will be teaching a class of sixth grade, two classes of mixed seventh and eighth grade, and a modified class specifically for special needs students. Did I mention that our school hasn't had a theatre classroom in several years? Allowing students to have a freedom of expression with their bodies and voices will strengthen their independence and creative skills both in and out of the classroom.

My students are kind, creative, passionate, and dramatic. I am so excited to bring the immersive experience of theatre class to these students. Many of them are already "all in," and it's so exciting to watch!

My Project

The materials that I selected for this project will allow my students to create proper age makeup. They will also be able to create a basic stage look. The colorful eye shadow palette will allow us to create bruises and other contusions out of makeup. By having this authentic experience in my class, students will be able to use their faces as their canvases to express themselves and will be able to learn proper makeup techniques for the stage! We also plan to dabble a little bit into special effects makeup and learn how professionals use actors' bodies as their canvases!
