Eager! My students come to art so eager to create. Eager to get their hands on all of the art supplies. Eager to please me. Eager for positive praise. I love seeing the sense of pride on their little faces when they complete a work of art.
I am hopeful that the sense of pride they gain in my classroom will stay with them and carry on into their future.
We are a Pre-K through 2nd grade school. "Land of the Little People." Many of our students face everyday challenges in and out of the classroom. The majority of our students are considered "at-risk." Our school is a Title 1 school providing free breakfast and lunch for every student. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can control their experiences throughout the school day. My goal is to make those experiences as positive and meaningful as possible.
An iPad Pro will be an engaging and powerful tool for art-making and creativity in my art classroom and beyond. My students can engage with content in interactive ways, creating stop motion films, digital drawings, find information in an instant, and create their own imagery anywhere, anytime. Technology such as that of the iPad Pro allows students to make mistakes than can be easily erased and easily undertake experimentation. Exploring the possibilities of digital art is exciting, creating with technology can be a confidence builder as well. An iPad Pro will also be a great addition to my special needs adaptive art class. Allowing students with sensory issues to still be able to create art!
