Statement: As an Art Educator, I believe the Arts have a powerful impact on learning, and everyday I try to teach my students the importance of Art. I teach my students about a variety of skills, materials and techniques, as well as the basic Elements and Principles, Master Artists, to even muliticultural Art, but most importantly about self-expression and a way of communicating their story to others. For this installation piece, we decided to create a piece that was close to home, and fun. Some of the fifth grade students here at Beechwood Elementary School painted the skyline of Columbus, Ohio in the style of Romero Britto. The students also worked on an artist research paper of Romero Britto, and most of the students mentioned how Mr. Britto's works of Art were fun and made them feel happy and cheerful. They created this painting using mostly acrylic paints, as well as some tempera paints, on canvas. To give some of my students an opportunity like this has been nothing short of amazing, with the hopes that they carry this experience with them for a very long time.
