My Students

My students are amazing! As a Middle School Art teacher, many of my students are being exposed to art for the first time. These students are excited to see what they can make and where their creativity can take them. Those that have had art before are looking for new and enriching experiences to develop their skills while those that are new to art are excited to experiment with new materials.

In order to keep students interested in the arts, we must give them the opportunity to set their creativity free and express themselves in a variety of ways.

Many of the students I work with come from low income families that are unable to purchase art materials for the home. My art class is their opportunity to experience these materials and develop their expressive and creative sides.

My Project

My advanced art students love to experiment with new types of art. Students have only had the opportunity to use pan watercolors in the past. The watercolor pencils will help students refine their watercolor abilities and increase their material knowledge base. The materials requested for this project will allow students to explore a new avenue in their artistic development. With this project, students will be creating increasingly difficult works of art while experimenting with a new medium.

Students will learn new techniques and skills to help build a portfolio of increasingly advanced work.

These portfolios will serve as examples of their creative ability for when they move into the arts in high school.
