Stories For Our Future: A Personal Book Art Project

My students need sketchbooks, watercolor paper, brushes, paint, X-Acto knives, pencils and erasers.

My Students

Students are passionate, self-aware and driven. They come from all over San Diego and represent the diversity of the city. As seniors, students are eagerly applying to college and planning for their future careers, all while working part time jobs, volunteering or participating in sports.

Project based learning is a cornerstone of our philosophy and students participate in many different projects throughout their time here.

The projects are authentic with real world experience applications.

As a 12th grade Art Teacher, I provide a variety of art materials to explore and integrate learning in all subjects. Students in my class are creating incredibly beautiful and meaningful art work. Students in other classes come to me to borrow paint, clay, tape or brushes and I love having enough supplies to share with the entire school.

My Project

Students will use journals throughout this semester to explore a variety of art exercises and concepts. They will record new vocabulary and add to their personal sketchbooks at home. It will all be held in one notebook that they can be proud of. Throughout the year the journal will be used to help organize projects as well as to show their learning throughout the year.

Students will discuss, dream and plan for their futures and use their own hopes and dreams to inspire others through stories.

In conjunction with their Engineering and Physics teacher, students will incorporate mechanisms and LED lighting systems into the pages of their book.

Using a variety of watercolor, paper art, and book binding techniques, students will create a personal book art project and share their stories with their community when finished.
