The saying goes: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” And the same is true with art. By teaching someone to make anything, a valuable bond is formed and the student will be able to create for the rest of his or her life. However, teaching this requires a lot of preparation on the teacher’s part.

“For my senior project, I am creating a curriculum for tapestry decor art that accommodates students with special needs and learning disabilities. It is harder than I expected. However, it is more meaningful to my life than I had expected as well,” said senior Lindsey Morin.

Morin plans on working with children with special needs. Whether she teaches kids or not, she has a passion for helping others, and it shows through her project.

“My students are doing extremely well. Over 40 have successfully completed their tapestry decor art, and [they] have learned a lot about the elements of art and how to incorporate it into original artwork,” said Morin.

Turning an idea into a tangible piece of decor is an overwhelming experience. The joy is unrivaled, even for the teacher.

“My favorite part of my project is seeing my students faces light up when I hand them their materials and completed worksheets. It’s not everyday you can make someone love learning,” said Morin.

Not only do the emotional bonds formed benefit both the teacher and students, but Morin has learned something else that is arguably more important.

“I believe that this senior project has taught me the valuable life skills of patience and hard work. If I could start my project over, I wouldn’t. My trials and errors completing my curriculum have ultimately made my curriculum [better]. I’ve completely back tracked and adjusted to make it the most realistic and reflective version it can be,” said Morin.
