My Students

My students are a group of kids who are used to being told no. They are a highly creative group, but are not always given the means, or time to use what makes them whole. They enjoy taking risks both behaviorally and creatively. If they are not engaged in the project/lesson that they are working on, they like to test their limits. They are easily distracted, but want to learn. I try to keep them guessing as to what it is that we will be doing next, to keep them on their toes. They thrive off challenge, and are easily bored with your cookie cutter art lessons. If I can provide them with materials that make them feel like artists, they might finally start seeing themselves as the artists that I know they are. My school is highly effective in creating a positive tone and culture for our students to achieve academic success. We are a title one school that struggles to provide quality materials that will give our students the opportunity to excel due to lack of funding.

My Project

The materials I am hoping to receive will give my students the opportunity to create and develop a proper portfolio for college submission. Many of my students are wildly talented artists. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide them with adequate materials to develop a portfolio that can compete with students from higher income high schools. These materials are necessary to produce a high functioning art course. It is difficult to learn and practice observational drawing when you have to visualize the information instead of actually observing it. With lights and charcoal, students will be able to understand and practice shading.
