  • Launch program allowing students to explore visual art in their class.
  • Instruct exciting curriculum based visual art lessons to grades 4-8.
  • Allow these students a chance to explore new mediums and techniques.
  • Inspire and enable these students to explore new Visual Art forms.
  • Showcase their creative efforts in an Art Exhibit at Program end.


The "Artist in My Class" program will inspire Students from grades 4-8 in my community. It is usually not until grade 9 that our students are offered an "Art Class" with an "Art Teacher". This is unfortunate because these are skills a younger child has the interest and capabilities of learning and practicing now. My program will offer elementary school students a chance to explore new methods and techniques while learning a curriculum based visual art lesson. For example: I may teach the students how to make objects appear 3 dimensional with the use of shadows and highlights. Then the students will create an acrylic painting on canvas to explore and show what they have learned. Before the end of the school year I will plan an Art Exhibit showcasing some of the finer examples produced by the students. My goal is to create enough interest in this program to allow it to continue and expand into other communities reaching thousands of students every year.
