WORK WITH STUDENTS

I strive to engage children in collaborative forms of art making with a focus on inquiry, process, exploration, and hands on learning. I enjoy seeing students find their creative voice through curiosity, group dialog and self-discovery.

 

Below are some examples of an arts integrated residencies that I offer. I work in a wide variety of mediums and am always excited to create custom residencies in collaboration with classroom teachers to focus on specific curricular content. Custom residencies may require additional planning time.

 

OBSERVATIONAL DRAWING & WATERCOLOR PAINTING

Possible topics of focus:

  • Pacific Northwest plants, birds, insects, animals, habitat, etc.
  • Self portraits
  • Portraits of place

 

Residency ideas:

  • Students make a field journal and create a series of observational drawings, learning to identify local plant species while taking scientific notes. This lesson works well in collaboration with a school garden program.
  • Students draw and paint a self portrait that explores identity, personal stories, and collective histories through creative writing
  • Students create a drawing that explores what they value about the place that they call home (language, family traditions, personal values, environment, climate, geography etc.)

 

*Curriculum can be easily altered to best serve different grades, classroom themes and lesson plans.

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS

My residencies integrate well with the following subjects: science, language arts, history, and social studies.

RESIDENCY LOGISTICS

Space: An existing art room or a room where students come to me is preferred, but I am flexible and can work with the variety of spaces schools have available. Open to moving from classroom to classroom.
