LEAD ARTIST OPPORTUNITY
TUCKER HIGH SCHOOL
About the Org: Tucker High School is a diverse community. I graduated here as a student, and thought so highly of it that I came back to teach! Everyone here is supportive and amazing, and we have a thriving art program (though I do wish we had theater).
About the Students: I teach roughly 150 children, ages 14-18. I do serve a few homeless children, but I feel as though overall our population is pretty normal. We also have a very large amount of ESOL children (refugees, from many different countries). I teach Visual Arts, Drawing, and Jewelry Design (metal working!).
What they would like: I would love to take my Jewelry class to see the glassblowing demos, or Georgia State has an annual iron pour! For my Drawing and Visual Arts class, anything really! Something sculptural? Cultural? Graphic Design based?
Potential Themes: Use your creativity! Look at how much cool stuff there is out there! Look what these awesome artists are doing!
Dates/Times: If possible, I would love to take my current Jewelry class to the glass blowing studio! My schedule this year, for that class, the opportune time would be on a Wednesday, starting at 1pm. For any of the classes this year or next, Wednesdays and Thursdays would work the best, as those are our block days, and classes are an hour and a half long each that day.
