Art for Kids’ Sake
We would like to thank the RBUSD community for supporting electives and funding a full time art teacher at Redondo Shores. We feel lucky to have our art teacher, Ms. Unique Campa, who is a great addition to our staff. Ms. Campa provides students with challenging projects that inspire creativity and good citizenship.
Ms. Campa summarizes her program best. “The art curriculum includes a breadth of mediums across a range of subjects, and serves as a mechanism for students to explore a variety of skills and techniques. Not all students consider themselves artists, but through these projects they become more aware of their creativity and enjoy exploring new avenues to express their ideas. While students continue to create traditional drawings and paintings, they are also given the opportunity to create other projects creating sketchbooks and journals through several book-making techniques projects like a miniature accordion book, a project so popular that staff asked to participate.
Ms. Campa teaches her students to be aware of the global community and explore art with a multicultural lens. Her students learn to recognize the value of their talents, hard work, and helping others in need. In December, the students put extra care into their portraits of orphaned children in Mexico since they knew Ms. Campa would deliver them as gifts. Student Chris Portillo comments, “Ms. Campa helps each of us get through the challenging assignments so we learn to do it ourselves. She will call us out if we are sloppy since she knows we can do better.” Emma Teti states, “What I really like about the art program is that Ms. Campa encourages us to go out of our comfort zone and take on a wide range of projects. Ms. Campa has high expectations because she knows we are capable. She is passionate about art and inspires us to love it too.”
