Her Hands Do The Talking: Breaira's Artist Statement

A big part of the creative process is the opportunity to reflect on one's art and articulate the intent behind the art making process.  One way to do this is to put thoughts into words in an artist's statement.  At Central Riverside Elementary, students in Mrs. Caro's (DHH) class had the opportunity to do this but not in the conventional way.  You see, Mrs. Caro's students are deaf or hard of hearing so they communicate with American Sign Language. Please view this video to see and hear 5th grader, Breaira's artist statement. You will see that her hands do the talking.
