My Students

I share an art learning and maker space as a visual arts teacher, with children in an elementary school in an urban setting. My students and their families are very diverse. With their diversity they bring their rich cultural heritage to share with each other.

What I love most about my students is their curiosity and enthusiasm for exploring and expressing life through art.

They do the most amazing job developing their identity through art experiences. Even though a high percentage of my students face the challenges of poverty, they are engaged in a mission to succeed and achieve. With their fighting spirit and the support of their community they will reach their dreams and become world changers!

My Project

These art supplies will give my students the opportunity to grow artistically while making connections between the visual arts and math, science, social studies, and language arts. The projects they will be creating in the art room will be an extension of what they are learning about in the classroom.

They will be using the Crayola Terra Cotta air dry clay to sculpt puppets to bring their language arts unit stories to life, using Reeve's Oil Pastels they will create owns inspired by artists Paul Klee and Mary Blair to teach they about fractions and division.

They will also use the clay to create and cast trilobite fossils as they begin a study of the rock cycle and different types of rocks.
