My Students

I work at a low socioeconomic school, and most of my students have had trauma in their young lives already. I feel a great need to work with this population because they need more positive , caring adults in their lives. MY kids are amazing! they enter my room excited and ready to create. They often confide to me that art is their favorite class. One reason, I love teaching art because I get to see the smiles of confidence on their faces when they completed their artwork! They are proud of what they made and what they have accomplished and that is the greatest reward for me!

My Project

I work at a Title I school, and my students do not always flourish in academic subjects, but when they enter the art room, they are artists!

I have been able to find an artist in all my students by varying the medium/ lessons and this project will help me expand their artistic experience.

It is truly magical when you see a child holding something he made that he is proud of.

Therefore, I would like to be able to teach my students 3 dimensional art , for example, sculpture, paper mache, etc. My students have never been able to make anything 3D, and those are the projects that are kept over the years. Also, I have limited access to supplies, very basic colors and materials. These materials would inspire more creativity in each child.
