My Students

My students are creative, curious, and completely in love with art. Students in my class love drawing, origami, painting, building, reading, making books, makings masks, and so much more. Even better, my students love working together to make collaborative artwork that reaches out to their community!

My students are eager learners and proud independent artists who come to me with endless ideas and the determination to make what they envision real.

My students are each special in their own way.

My Project

Our school district is beginning the year learning virtually. The elementary students that I teach will be receiving a Microsoft Surface Go 2 tablet from the district to participate in virtual learning. In order to provide students with fun, exciting work that is tailored for their device, I would like to procure for myself the same tablet they are receiving.

Learning art from home is fundamentally different from how we would have art class in person - working together in a physical space and sharing materials.

However, now that all students have simultaneous access to digital tools, we have the opportunity to explore digital art-making together!

While we learn at home, I can design lessons based on the device students are using, and when we return to the classroom, we will have a tablet in the classroom that students are familiar with and can use to make further digital artwork in the classroom!
