My Students

My students come from all different back grounds, ethnicities, and are comprised of 9th -12th graders. Our school is an intercity school where art is not only a required elective, but an outlet students look forward to each day to express themselves.

Many students tell me they come to school because of my class and I love that... art gets them there and then my hope is that they stay to grow everywhere else.

My students appreciate the support they receive from knowing others care.

My Project

Students are inspired by music and the rhythms they hear every day! As a teacher I want to bring their lives into their art work.

In the assignment I'm requesting these materials for, I will be asking the students to listen to music and using a song title or lyric(s) they are to illustrate an image that reflects their selection.

I love using illustration board for this project because it's a quality material that allows mixed media; they will be using watercolor (a requested material), pen and ink, colored pencil, and or pencil to develop their image.

The speakers, illustration board and watercolor sets that I am requesting will allow for this project to come to life for my students.
