My students need the fundamentals: Crayola and Sharpie markers for outlining and design. Liquid watercolors for exploring the painting process. It is challenging keeping a stocked artroom for 350 creative kids!
Ms. Arteaga's students are energetic and vibrant! They are ambitious, responsible and committed to learning. Majority are active in sports and a number of after school activities, including cooking, chess and ballet.
My students truly appreciate the little things and love art because of the creative outlet it provides in their day.
I have 350 kids from pre-K through 8th grade. Our school provides a safe and orderly environment for learning. The Auburn Gresham neighborhood is strong and historical community in Chicago.
My students of all grades look forward to art every week! I try to facilitate as much 'hands on' experience in the limited amount of time I have with them. Having enough materials for all 350 students is a challenge.
These 'fundamental' supplies will be used with 350 kids on a daily basis!
We use markers for coloring, outlining and drawing-especially with K-3.
Grades 4-8 like using more sophisticated Sharpie markers for outlining and drawing.
I prefer liquid watercolors because of their managebility and versatility: They can be used in a variety of ways with a variety of age groups.
Students are proud of the work they do in art and get very excited when they see their work displayed around the school. Having enough resources makes it possible for students to express themselves visually and practice becoming an artistically literate human being.
