Prairie Creek Elementary
Jamie L. Clark
This grant is to help bring tools that high school/college students and professional artists use in their trade to the elementary art classroom. At the present time, students produce art sitting or standing at a table. I believe the drawing horses and easels will bring an authenticity to the students allowing them to experience making art in a different way. The art horses will allow students to sit straddled off the floor with a drawing board holding their work in an upright position giving them a better perspective in which to create their work of art. The easels will allow students to stand and produce art in the upright position giving the student artists a better perspective of their work. Through the use of the tables, drawing horses, easels, and drawing boards, students will benefit from a variety of art-making experiences. I want to capture their imagination and love for producing art. It is also my desire for students to experience the different aspects of producing art and the jobs they can pursue using the artistic skills they develop throughout their education (graphic design, studio artist, illustration, etc.).
