My Students

At the end of the school year, I want to empower students through art.

I want my students to have an appreciation for the arts and for them to build self-confidence through the arts.

It is my ultimate goal for them to be exposed to various artists, styles, cultures, and mediums.

My students come from a very low-income, inner-city area. Eighty-eight percent of the students at my school are eligible for free or reduced-price​ lunch. Most of our students have very rough home lives and come to school every single day with baggage. They are in need of the most basic things such as food and clothing. Our students desperately need art. It is their therapy!

My Project

Students will be learning about the American artist Wayne Thiebaud. Thiebaud was born in Arizona and just recently passed away- he was 101 years old! Thiebaud is well known for his colorful works of art that depict commonplace objects and edible treats- pies, lipsticks, cakes, ice cream, pastries, etc. Students will be introduced to his art through a Powerpoint presentation and a video clip. Students will then have the opportunity to create their very own Wayne Thiebaud-inspired hot chocolate cup sculpture! This lesson will introduce students to many elements and principles of art including form, texture, space, color. We will also be discussing the following art terms: sculpture, coil, clay, variety, texture, and realistic art. Model Magic is always on the wish list for my classroom, as it is an expensive item. This lesson is so engaging and my students really look forward to it ALL YEAR. After Covid shutdowns and virtual learning, my students deserve the best! This is the perfect mid-year art project to keep our students engaged! Thank you so much for your time and support!
