My Students

As students enter the art room they are excited and willing to try new things. Working together, we make our class a place for discovery, and I want my students to experience everything our world has to offer as they find how they can directly impact their community with art.

My students are attending a growing charter school that is committed to giving students multiple opportunities for success.

Our charter school currently consists of kindergarten through 8th grade and will grow every year.

My Project

Young artists will be using the requested pens, paper, trimmer, and reference books to express their creativity! Students will focus on meditation and relaxing while creating beautiful original patterns. Students will explore various Zentangle designs. They will see how meditation and focus can help them create beautiful and original artwork.

These materials will help give students the tools to explore their individual talents.

These young artists will have the chance to express themselves while focusing in a quiet zenlike environment. Students in grades kindergarten through 5th grade will create individual original designs. The finished products will be displayed and shared school-wide.
