My Students

My students are emerging creative artists and inquisitive learners who come to my inspiration art studio to explore learning through critical problem solving, community interactions and self expression. They are eager to share their stories through creating art while exploring their inner vision.

My students are aspiring beginning artists who enter the art studio with excitement to create visual learning memories and engage in their creative development.

They struggle with English as a second language and have limited experiences in exploring the world around them through creating or experimenting with media and methods of art.

My school is in an economically depressed area nestled in a business district where the urban environment is stark and drab. Most of these young artists do not have creative expressive materials at home. The art classroom is often an environment of first experiences of wonder, and accepted self expression.

My Project

Numbers and Shapes are often a main focus of artists. They are used in various techniques of creating art. The dies will be used to help students identify and apply math concepts through their art production.

Utilizing the Sizzix dies in the art studio would help students practice Math literacy across the STEAM curriculum in all grades.

Creating art with Math components would support the school's goal for improving Math skills and Literacy.

Creating art with numbers and shapes will help math skills across the grades. Students will create art from applied math with the help of the Sizzix dies.
