My Students

The most exciting thing for myself and my students is the light-bulb moment. In a quarterly rotation class, students from all skill sets walk into my art room, some not even liking art. I love it when students come up to me, especially the ones who didn't want to be there in the first place, with a light in their eyes and huge smiles on their faces and exclaim, "Mrs. B! Remember when you taught us this? Look what I did!"

My Project

In a rotational class, I often have students who do not enjoy art because they have not found success within the classroom. Specialty tools such as the Gagne Porta-Trace Lumen Series LED Light Panels can help those students build the confidence needed to see art in a new light and to try new things.

Tracing not only allows for success for those students who may not realize it otherwise, but also assists in developing fine motor control.

There are also students within the classroom who may benefit from having a tool in which they can practice their fine motor control, whether that means finger dexterity while getting into details, simply being able to follow the course of a line, or learning how to feel pressure changes in your hand while drawing. All of these are skills that students are able to hone in an art room.
