Week 0: An Introduction
Hello! My name is Katelyn Brickner, and I have been at BASIS Independent Brooklyn since 6th grade. For my senior project, I will be researching how creating visual art helps children manage, process, and regulate their emotions. I am very passionate about teaching and have taught glass-working classes to children over the past few summers. On-site, I will work alongside Danyelle Weathers, a BASIS Independent Brooklyn elementary art teacher, and Tiffiney Davis, co-founder of the Red Hook Art Project. At the end of the project, I will have created a journal of my observations and research, as well as a written statement summarizing my findings and detailing how art education can be improved to best benefit children. For more information on my Senior Project, you can view details here.
I look forward to sharing my research with everyone!
