School Kindness Garden

My students need markers, paint, protective spray, and edging to make a kindness garden.

My Students

I am lucky to be the only art teacher in a small school, which holds prek to 8th grade students. The different levels give me the opportunity to try out a large range of projects. The younger kids focus on process and the older kids learn techniques, art history, and the principles and elements of design.

Other than curriculum I want my students to love creating as much as I do.

I want them to use their imagination, and creativity to make any lesson their own.

My Project

I'd love to create a whole school kindness rock garden in our courtyard. I would create age appropriate lessons for each grade. After the faculty meeting where we created our own kindness rocks I notice the difficulty of creating details with basic paint. The paint pens would allow students to have more control over their designs. I'm also asking for Mod Podge spray to protect the rocks and gardening materials to allow us to display them.

I want my students to know the power of kindness and to be the givers as well as the receivers.

We all sometimes need a little pick me up from everyday life. When students need that they could be given a moment to go into our garden.
