My Students

I work as an art specialist with kids in both a mainstream elementary school and a special education school for students with severe and multiple disabilities. I love both of my teaching environments, and have really enjoyed bringing the two schools together to make collaborative art and develop social and peer partnering skills. At my special education school I enjoy introducing students to new art media were they can have new experiences and learning that is specified to their developmental ability. At my mainstream elementary school I enjoy working with students to apply the concepts they are learning in their grade level classroom and school character skills in their art creation. Students work in teams and create collaborative work as well as self reflective work.

My Project

Students love to work on clay projects in my art classroom, clay takes them from the picture plane into reality of form.

Clay projects are three dimensional, with these decorating banding wheels students will see their ceramic art projects from all angles.

Students can spin their work while building and add color and designs to decorate all sides of their work without picking it up (and potentially breaking it).

In addition to using our decorating banding wheels with clay, these spinning wheels will capture the imagination and interest of my special education students when we make all types of spinning art.
