I am an art teacher for students with disabilities. My students range in age from 4 to 21. These children face developmental and behavioral challenges every day.
I am impressed daily by the perseverance my students show as they complete projects that are challenging due to their disabilities with communication, attention, fine & gross motor skills, processing, and hearing loss.
I am continuously inspired when they complete a project and smile with pride because they didn't think they could do it.
My students undergo challenges everyday with tasks that most people find easy. Keeping them engaged in art projects is always challenging as the fine motor skills needed for most art projects are extremely difficult and sometimes impossible for these kids.
The Sizzix Machine and the Gelli Plates allow my students the freedom to create beautiful pieces of printmaking art that builds their self confidence.
The students can communicate what they want to do and with minimal help create their own masterpieces! These tools help me to differentiate my art projects so that everyone can be successful with the printmaking process.
