My Students

My students are creative and inquisitive. They absolutely love hands-on, activities and engaging art projects. They come to my art class each day excited to learn what our newest project we will be and are ready to try new mediums and skill building activities. I try to make sure they understand that the process of creating art is just as important as the final outcome, if not more. I want them to have fun so that they can grow personally, academically, and creatively.

I am an educator in a low-income/high poverty school district and my students have many challenging situations both in and out of the classroom.

Regardless of my students life situations, they are excited to come to school and learn about new things. As an art educator, I strive to instill a love of art in my students and keep them excited about coming to school and learning to think outside the box and problem solve through art. My main job is to help prepare them for the 21st century work place.

My Project

Safe seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make learning less stressful. During independent work times, my students are worrying more about their seats, then their art work. This is occurring because my stools have hydraulics, which are broken and are too expensive to replace, their chairs are constantly moving up and down on their own and sometimes my students get trapped and hurt under the high tables.

It is important for students to feel comfortable and safe when creating their art work.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are in chair/stools that do not move up and down while they are trying to draw and paint. The product that I have selected will help my students by giving them seating that will help them focus their attention on learning and creating rather than being worried about getting hurt. These would also allow my younger students access to the art tables, which I currently find far to dangerous for first and second grade artists.

I have seen how safety can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional seating will help us grow even more!
