My Students

I teach general education students as well as special needs students. My school is in a very urban location. We are located in Paterson, New Jersey. Most students are not dominant in the English language. Our school has breakfast in the classroom program and lunch in the cafeteria because much of our population struggles with having basic needs met.

My students love to come into the art room because they have a chance to become critical thinkers and independently create original artwork that relates to them on a personal level.

They are able to explore their emotions and release their frustrations by tapping into their inner thoughts and creating artwork that inspires me and others to keep creating and evolving artistically. I am inspired by my students daily.

Art therapy is a creative method of expression used as a therapeutic technique. Students will be able to create art that will help them understand their emotions, relieve stress, and create positive and uplifting artistic pieces. Students will learn how to become more intuitive and self-aware.

My Project

I am an art teacher and much of my instruction involves demonstrations. Before COVID, students would gather around me and watch me draw or paint step by step so that they could later do it themselves. With the technology now it is hard to show them what I am working on step-by-step without the proper tools. I think this camera and scanner will help me provide my students with quality instruction. Art class really helps to make sense of the nonsensical world we currently live in. It documents the history we are making. It is an outlet for our frustrations and fears. Now more than ever I need to stay connected and creating with my students.
