My Students

My students attend a school in a small, quiet community in southwest Oklahoma. Our school serves Pre-K to 1st grade with approximately 350 students and 20 teachers. Over half of the students are either free or reduced-price lunch and we have a very diverse ethnicity. Our school is also a low income Title 1 school and serves special needs students.

My current class of pre-kindergarteners lack creative expression.

I'm hoping to awaken their creativity by actively engaging them in the arts.

My Project

Painting is much more than a simple activity. It is a way for different types of children to express themselves in their own special way. I am asking for a gallon each of ten different colors of washable tempera paint for my children to create art and learn to express themselves.

Painting also helps children use their senses, express emotion, explore process and outcomes, explore color, and create aesthetically pleasing works and experiences.

The paintbrush becomes an instrument of inner peace allowing the creative process to allow both good and bad feelings from the artist. As a child paints, both sides of the brain are engaged, strengthening the connection between the two hemispheres. The soothing process of painting is often what is interesting to young children. The pleasant feeling of painting over and over, possibly using two brushes or their fingers, is what is important.
