Dominque is not one of my art students because all 6 of my classes are too full (no seats available in the room). However, I could not let that keep her from growing as an artist! When she came into my room and introduced herself and showed me her beautiful artwork, I was impressed. I was even more impressed at what a lovely young lady she was on the outside and the inside so I stay after school with Dominque and we paint together. Today Dominque painted this beautiful boat painting and I worked on the Monet mural. We listened to music, painted and had a lovely time together. She is a very special young lady!
I am an art educator and a professional artist. I write this blog to guide my students in (SEL) social, emotional, and academic development. S.E.L. is the District of Columbia Public School's priority because we believe that we must educate the whole child.
