Art in the Classroom
Since the beginning of school, the students have been taking visual arts lessons. We have done printmaking, gesture drawings, oil pastel drawings, self portraits, figure drawing, and foil figure sculptures. I will begin a gallery of the student's work without their names. So, you will get a sample of how talented students in the inner city can be. Every art project they do amazes me. I have a bulletin board outside my classroom that displays the current week's art project. At first, the students were reticent to have their work posted, but after several weeks they actually enjoyed it.
