Here’s what teachers have said about AAEP Teaching Artists:
The product we got from the students after two short lessons was really amazing! He covered a lot of ground and threw in some science information as well. It was an awesome experience.
Marge Forest presented an excellent lesson again. She was helpful, knowledgeable, and effective. Her slide show gave students a background history of sculpture. Our sculpture walk at WWU was also beneficial. It really did reinforce the elements of design, and materials used by sculptors.
This was a great project relating to perspective. The students learned how to draw the inside of a room. Students made a connection to this project a month later when we were doing threedimensional geometry. Terry was fabulous. Students loved her lesson and were proud of their products. A worthwhile lesson!
Thank you for your support and expertise in this endeavor. I admire your life choices that make it possible for you to positively influence so many lives. Because of you and others, the arts are alive! You never know whose lives you touch as a teacher. Influencing lives positively is what makes life worth living!
My students learned a lot about drawing a bird: looking at form, line, color, shading, etc. I think Donna did an excellent job of teaching them. They were excited about their end product, which are true pieces of art.
The students and I learned a great deal about art – trying things – you didn’t need to draw ‘like’ everyone else! Play with media! Have fun! Explore! We loved it!
We had a great time working with artist, Ben Mann. He is a really excellent teacher, which I have come to believe is a rare characteristic for an artist. His loose and playful painting style is perfect for a middle school group.
Ramon has a great, calm manner that the class responded well to. He was easily able to modify the curriculum to meet individual needs of students. Thank you!
Students were highly engaged in mask-making. Lesson was aligned with our curriculum in Native American studies.
