My Students

Art is an important part of our school curriculum. Art is a hands-on subject that allows students to show what they think, feel, and know. Art also requires hands-on materials that must be replaced each school year.

My students come from all over the World, speak many languages and come from diverse social and cultural backgrounds.

Nearly 70% of our families qualify for free and reduced lunch. Our school is an urban International School with global perspectives infused throughout the curriculum. We serve 460 plus students. Each student receives art instruction once a week for 40 minutes and twice a week for two-thirds of the school year. Art is a universal language that connects humanity across time and location. Art is a natural way for students regardless of language or background to communicate their learning.

My Project

My students love to paint!! The challenge is acquiring quality materials for them to explore media and techniques. Liquid watercolors allow students to explore color theory while expressing their learning and ideas. I see around 175 students a day in the art room. My classroom is part of the multi-purpose room, which also houses before and after school childcare, our cafeteria, and stage. The art room walls are opened daily and the space is shared with our school community. Finding a safe place to dry student art work is difficult without proper storage furniture. A portable drying rack will allow student to create larger paintings and can also be used for storing many other projects.

This project will provide painting materials for a whole year for my students as well as a drying rack that will be used for many years to come.

Art increases student confidence, motivation, and critical thinking skills while allowing them to express their learning in diverse ways.
