My Students

The visual arts are a place of discovery and learning. The goal of my classes is to engage the students in the creative process and let them know of the much larger art world outside our doors, to enter galleries and know how and why a piece of work was created. We live in an artistic world; my job is to help the students better interpret that.

My students come from a wide variety of diversified backgrounds and live in Oklahoma City.

Although I might sound biased, we truly have some of the greatest kids around. They are excited to learn new techniques and not afraid to voice their opinions on life. My students take great pride in both our school and their community.

My Project

My sculpture students are just now learning about structure and space. The difficulty comes when we need materials to further hone those skills. Budget cuts have all but cut off school funding and our meager remaining funds have left us having to make due with alternate materials. While that is part and parcel with the arts it does make for a lack in truly learning the artistic process.

By utilizing plaster forms as the base of their work my students can achieve a higher understanding of sculptural forms.

The goal of this project is to help the students begin to learn about additive art. They will use the mold as a base for both plaster and concrete and even learn how to decoupage the forms.
