Rouchell's Artist Statement

This painting is by Rouchell, a 5th grade student in Mrs. Caro's class at Central Riverside Elementary School and part of the DHH (Deaf and hard of Hearing) Program at Central Riverside.  

In art class, the students were studying depth in their art by showing a variety of undersea creatures in their environment, then positioning them in the foreground, middle ground and background as well as overlapping them.  
Upon completion of the paintings, the students wrote an artist's statement describing the strategies they used to create depth as well as how the experience made them feel.  Please, view the video below to see Rouchell tell us about her painting - not with words but with her hands as she uses American Sign Language.
