My Students

We are located in the Montbello community, is a proud Denver Public School, serving an ECE-7th grades. Our student population includes 96% FRL, 97% minority, 73% English Language Learners, and 9% Special Education students. Our demographics also included 78% Hispanic students, 13% African American, 4% White, and 3% who identify as other ethnic backgrounds. Additionally, our school is identified as one of the “20 Top Priority Schools” in Denver Public Schools, a list based on high student body rates for FRL, Mobility, Poverty, etc.

Our artists are learning creative critical thinking skills by creating student lead artistic explorations inspired by the way contemporary artists work today!

Artists explore the world much like scientists do and at our school we have been working to transform wonders into artworks using an investigatory approach.

My Project

In our art room we collect our sketches, plans, and fact sheets into self constructed binder loops. Unfortunately we loose so many of our plans and sketches becuase they aren't connected in book form. The real goal of sketching is functional. It’s about generating ideas, solving problems, and communicating ideas more effectively with others.

If we have sketchbooks that can collect our ideas effectively our artists will grow faster through the power of sketching.

With your help we could look back on past ideas easily, practice artworks before making final drafts and build off of plans more quickly. Collecting our work in one place can be a powerful tool for reflection, language development and idea generation. Please help us organize our minds by organizing our sketches.
