• Is art important to have in schools for students?

    Art is important to students because it helps them with their learning and it could even help them control their feelings. Also, art can let the student

    • Dear Maria,

      I am so glad that you brought up art because I also believe that art is a subject that needs to be taught in every high school. Like you said, art helps with learning, showing emotions without speaking, and getting a message through everybody.

      One sentence that stood out to me was, ¨Art allows the students to have some breaks from school work. Also, it allows students to clear their minds from too much work¨. I agree with this statement because school gives us students a little bit too much work. But by releasing stress with art, we are helping ourselves and clearing our mind from the stress.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have the same issues that I have. We both want things in our schools that we can have, but spreading awareness will help.

      Thank you for your writing,

    • Dear Maria,
      I am amazed by your blog, “Art Classes In Oakland”, because not only did it teach me something new but it made me realize how important art is. I really enjoyed that you used the evidence where student who took Art classes where 1.5 times more likely to meet and pass the ACT composite score. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “Some adults believe art classes are helpful to students because if they have something distracting them from schoolwork they can always do art to calm down and get it out”. I think this is an attention getter because it shows people that art can help someone center themselves so they can focus on what they need to focus on. It also shows that it can help students turn in their homework and have passing grades. Your blog reminds me of something that happened to me. One time in elementary a teacher of mine was tired of us talking and being off task so he decides to make us draw. After 30 minutes of drawing we all calmed down and he was able to teach the class. This blog reminded me of how important art can really be. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you have a great way of showing that art can actually calm someone.

    My identities

    This shadow box should show my identities, how I see the world, and how I feel about everything in my life. The reason why I put a magazine picture of girls with fist because it

    • Hi Maria,
      I really like the picture, it has something that is unique.
      I like the line that says “Females are strong, brave, and smart”, because we all know that that is true but there are some people who think the opposite. For example if you ask a man he would say the opposite but I think you did a good job.
      I have a question
      Does being a Mexican have affected you? for example have you faced discrimination or racism?
      How do you feel being in the United states?
      Probably next time show some of the traditions of mexico?
      How old are You when You came to the U.S?

    • Dear Maria,

      Thank you for sharing your work. My name is Juana and I am a student at Fremont High School.
      Something I liked about your work was that you want women to be seen strong and powerful because I can relate.
      Something I have a question about is Why do you see your world black? Please feel free to comment on my work in the future. The address of my student blog is

    Dear Bertha.

    I agree with you because this is really how people think of girls and say how they act. They think women are here to do house work for others. The sentence I liked most in your essay is when you say, ” Washing my face and then applying makeup to look “pretty” every single day…” This sentence shows how people think women should do…[Read more]
