My Students

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.... and 550 students want to make their school more beautiful.

I teach at an inner city school in Southern California.

My school has a diverse bunch of enthusiastic learners. Most of my students are on free and reduced lunch. Many of their parents cannot afford for them to participate in extra curricular activities, so the art they are exposed to in my classroom is often all there is. I have found that art is a leveler of the playing field. Children who often do not feel successful in some content areas really excel in art. This gives them an opportunity to shine, feel knowledgeable, and proud.

My Project

I am organizing a Mural project that will include students from all grade levels (k-5) allowing the kids to showcase their work to the school, their families, and the community as a whole. With help from a local artist the students will create a unique tree mosaic mural that will be displayed on the exterior wall of the school that will enhance the beauty of the school and surrounding neighborhood. They will need broken mirror and tiles in order to create the mural, as well as grout and the help of a skilled community artist to facilitate this extraordinary project!

This will be a permanent art feature in the school and will enhance the aesthetic beauty of the school yard and surrounding community.

More importantly this project builds passion in art and allows students who may not excel in other content areas to shine through their artistic abilities. With your support students will be able to experience a completely new medium and learn how an art installation takes place.
