My Students

My students are bright, inquisitive, and excited to learn about art. I teach in an urban Title I high school. My students range from grades 9 to 12 and they are the best kids, but the school operates on a tight budget and has little to no funding for art. It’s important to me that they have all the resources they need for their artwork.

As their teacher and mentor, nothing would please me more than to just hand students the supplies they need.

My Project

Our school needs beautification. For this project, students will learn about the quilts of Gee's Bend and how the quilt symbolized practicality and survival for the descendants of slaves in this small community. Quilt making is a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation among the Gee’s Bend quilters and is still popular today. Students will learn about the stories told in the artwork, which will carry over to the art project. The students will use the requested quilting materials to create an actual fabric quilt to hang in the school.

My goal is for each of them to leave my class loving art and acquiring lifelong skills.

Art experiences help students across the curriculum and increase cognitive skills. Many of my students have not had art class before, and I want to encourage intrinsic learning. To do all of this, they need to be able to experience art, art history, and artists.
