My students need a craft oven and polymer clay to start learning the hands-on art of creating fun charms and figurines!
I teach art to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students in a rural northeastern Arizona junior high school. My classes are made up of children with a wide range of art exposure, ability, and interests. My goal is to help students express themselves through art by exposing them to a new forms of artistic creation.
In my class, students experience a safe place to share their thoughts, feelings, and interests through artistic expression.
Students in my school want their voices to be heard. They are in a phase of their young lives where it is difficult to talk about the opinions, beliefs, and struggles they are experiencing. Students in my class learn to express themselves visually using many different forms of art and, in doing so, often learn that they are not alone.
I love seeing the sense of pride and accomplishment that a student experiences when they are able to create art that speaks to their classmates!
Students love to use their imagination and creativity. They have plenty of opportunities to sketch, color, and paint, but they have few chances to create 3-dimensional art. Our school does not have funding for a kiln, so ceramics is not an option. A simple craft oven and polymer clay would give students an affordable alternative to ceramics. With these materials, students will be able to create fun 3D figures and creatures. Their options will be endless!
Students love to try new kinds of art and thrive when they have the freedom of choice in what they will create, and this project will give them both of these things!
The products I have requested for this project would make a positive impact on our current art program and add to the experiences of our students.
