My Students

My students are emerging creative artists and inquisitive learners who come to my inspiration art studio to explore learning through critical problem solving, community interactions and self expression. They are eager to share their stories through creating art while exploring their inner vision.

My students are aspiring beginning artists who enter the art studio with excitement to create visual learning memories and engage in their creative development.

They struggle with English as a second language and have limited experiences in exploring the world around them through creating or experimenting with media and methods of art.

My school is in an economically depressed area nestled in a business district where the urban environment is stark and drab. Most of these young artists do not have creative expressive materials at home. The art classroom is often an environment of first experiences of wonder, and accepted self expression.

My Project

In every library, there is a special spot for really cool books. Students will discover all sorts of heroes and historical figures, facts about bugs and volcanoes and more in this collection of books! Students will have an opportunity to explore an interest and discover new ideas in this special section collection of books. Here too, they will find stories of character and social emotional growth. Favorite authors and stories will be available for sharing and developing independent projects. Books open the world right in your hands. Help our library grow.
