We lived to celebrate the first day of the rest of our lives! We made it at last. Now lets snoop around and see what we can get into next! Only a fool learns from their own mistakes when there are so many lessons to learn from the experiences of others. We won't be greedy with our information here. Cheers!
My Students: Need to increase self esteem while perfecting art skills? Imagine inspiring confidence in students through the arts.
Students with physical and mental challenges are afraid to draw and confused about art. Practicing makes anything easier. Art builds self confidence. The arts express what cannot be expressed through words and will open lines of communication. Students will be able to conceptualize abstract ideas that are difficult to teach without the use of concrete art materials.
My Project: Students will create unique works of art for the Special Olympics Art competition in our state. In the past, students have had to use classroom markers, pencils, and crayons for their submissions. The use of inadequate supplies has caused a decrease in quality of work. With the use of new art supplies students will be proud of their work and will want to preserve their works of art by framing them. Framing will ensure a masterpiece that can be kept for many years to come.
Individuals of all abilities will have an opportunity for creative expression through art. Art nurtures predictability, stability, and skill building. Winning an art competition will provide some of these students a once in a lifetime chance to experience success.
