For my senior project I hosted an art class for 5th graders. In this art class my students studied 3 techniques which include patterns, symbolism, and textures. The students then explored the techniques and were inspired to make emotional connections to their lives. likes, dislikes etc. For example we explored how these techniques would be created on paper through an emotion such as anger, sadness, or happiness. During this I got to see how different kids react to different situations. I learned this about the kids as well as ways to teach them new things. Working with them was difficult at first because the kids didn't know me and they didn't listen or stay focused. I realized I needed to be more prepared and I had to figure out what I wanted them to do and get out of it. I created a plan for the rest of the days in the mini course. This worked perfectly because soon after I got supplies for the kids to do lots of art and I made lots of connections with the kids. I did this by having one on one time with each kid and we discussed their process as I learned more about them they grew in some areas and they got some experience with drawling what they felt. In ways the kids were wayward but we had an overall good course and I am proud to say I ran that course. I also am very thankful for being able to run the course and do this project because this will help me in life to come and this will give me some experience with different children which will help me when I get older.
