My Students

My students range from five-year-old kindergartners to 12-year-old fifth-graders, all with incredibly creative minds, varying abilities and skills, and a whole lot of enthusiasm for art! The students engage in a lot of different types of art projects, but they are hard on themselves and constantly restart their work because they want to do better. This is a big drain on the art supplies, but it says a lot about them. They want to be successful and keep trying until they feel they have it right!

What I love most about them is their creativity, originality, determination, and passion.

Many of the students come with more on their plates than any child should have. They carry loads that would be hard for many adults to bear, but they try. When they are engaged, they put forth energy and passion that could light the world on fire.

My Project

Times are changing, education is changing, and students are changing, but one thing has remained constant; supplies are always needed! We would love the opportunity to use these Richardson watercolor paints to create masterpieces!

My students are creative, original determined and passionate!

We try to integrate a variety of different painting styles and mediums of art into our lessons. With limited supplies in the classroom, we are often doing the same types of projects with the same types of materials.

Providing the students with different creative options, especially painting supplies, will allow them to show their creativity and focus on expressing themselves through their art!
