Teaching Art at Perspectives
2010-11 School Year
The Chicago Art Department (CAD) has partnered with Perspectives Charter School to teach art classes once a month. As a member of CAD, I have had the opportunity to develop and teach ReSculpture Class using recycled materials and paper mache techniques to 10th, 11th and 7th graders. I also taught the Senior class 'green graffitti' which included making seed bombs, planting sod art and moss painting.

Each grade only gets one day of art per 2010-11 school year, so we try to make it a fun, productive and memorable. Check out some of the footage I took of our 7th graders in January 2011.
