My Students

My students are from a rural, socioeconomically depressed area. Some have never been out of our county. Exposure to the arts is very rare. Appreciation for the arts in our area is rare as well. Many of my students are from single parent families, foster homes, or are being raised by grandparents. When they face such struggles in their daily lives, art isn't something of importance. I want my students to use their art as their voice, and as their therapy. Art can transport them away from their troubles or help them to work through them. I also want to help budding artists discover they can have a career in the arts.

My Project

We are a small rural school in eastern Kentucky. Our students are not exposed to the arts until their freshman year. This puts my students at a great disadvantage.

Many of my students come from poverty, divorce, drugs and hopelessness.

Art, the act of participating in painting, can become an outlet, or a much needed distraction. It may also inspire our next Vincent Van Gogh!

We will use the canvases to do a series of acrylic paintings in the style of Vincent Van Gogh. This will teach them technique, art history and color theory. It will also hopefully instill in them a love for painting.
