My Students

McMicken Third Graders are amazing.

In second grade they visited the Seattle Arts Museum Sculpture Park and have learned to identify different elements of art.

They love creating art in different mediums. Rarely, do they have the opportunity. We are always looking for ways to engage our students in different art experiences.

I love my students curiosity and their desire to create art by using different mediums

They love slime and I know they enjoy different tactile experiences. They struggle daily and this project is one way to support them!

My Project

Every year students write I Am From poems. These poems are opportunities for students to reflect and define what makes them unique and special. My students need a variety of ways to celebrate who they are and develop a caring and accepting community. We have daily meetings and group activities. Students use speaking, listening and writing skills.

Art will give students another way to Express themselves.

The supplies my project requires are clay sculpting tools, a variety of glazes for skin tones and facial details, clay, and metal x's to place finished pieces in the kiln and keep them from sticking.

All students can benefit and participate, especially students learning English. An additional way to encourage social and emotional security is through varied art experiences. This project will be an additional opportunity for students to express themselves by constructing themselves in clay.
