My Students

I am an art teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district so I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

It is very important for my students to have opportunities to be creative since we have very little cultural activities in our area.

My students get so excited when they have an opportunity to be creative and particularly with a hands-on experience. The school is most of my students only opportunity for art experiences.

My Project

Watercolor is a beautiful art medium that my students enjoy. They create wonderful paintings in watercolor, but it is difficult to paint with watercolors on drawing paper. The water goes through the paper instead of soaking into the paper, which allows the paint to move around on the paper. Drawing paper is also too thin and tears when it gets wet. I don’t want the students to get frustrated. I want to teach my young artists watercolor techniques and allow them to have success when using these techniques. For that they need real watercolor paper.
