Picasso, Kahlo, Dalí, & My Students

Help me give my students opportunities to do art with the markers and colored pencils.

My Students

I have new babies this year at a new school. They are wiggly, silly, and full of teen attitude. And they poke fun at me and giggle at my corny jokes. They are, as well, cute and like sponges ready to soak up life as well as make their mark.

My babies have a heart of service.

Some help me in the classroom with getting books and art supplies from storage. To their potential, they also help and encourage each other. All respect social parameters and, as well, practice etiquette. They say, for example, "May I," "Please," "Thank you," "Good Morning," and "Have a good day." Yummy stuff from teenagers.

Most meet academic challenges to their potential. Others are fine troopers when I must strongly encourage them to meet their challenges. I look forward to seeing them everyday. I am reminded of the reasons that I became a teacher.

My Project

Doing art builds students' self efficacy and their socialization skills. Some students do not take art classes, so they have fewer opportunities for these kinds of expressions and growth.

Built into the art sessions are academic review, chances to transfer learned material, socialization, and art appreciation.

To enhance students' oral presentation on the 21 Spanish-speaking countries, for example, students are going to design and color the flags of each country on the ceiling tiles of the school. Another plan is for students to design and color a map of the Spanish-speaking world and to post it in a central location in the school, as well. Still, students will have opportunities to mimic the work of famous artists such as Freda Kahlo, Picasso, Rivera, and Dalí.

Students benefit intrinsically through art expression. They also benefit because art expression strengthens academic and social development.
