Giving Art Back
For the third year now the staff at Fairhaven in Niles, OH have opened the doors for the members of the Hubbard Chapter of National Arts Honor Society. Every fall and spring season a group of students make their way to Fairhaven Schools to put on a four hour workshop with around 100 students per trip on what has become known as Art Day at Fairhaven. The projects that the students of Mr. MacMillan’s NAHS included a paper bag scarecrow, Thanksgiving tree, turkeys, coloring a picture of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, and a bracelet out of beads. The 9 students paired up at their individual stations where they were in charge of their own individual craft.
The Fairhaven School Program is an educational option in the continuum of special education services and learning environments available to individuals with developmental disabilities in the state of Ohio. The Local Educational Agency (LEA) is responsible for child identification, multi-factored evaluation, and development and review of each child's Individual Education Plan (IEP). Any child placed at Fairhaven by the LEA must meet the eligibility criteria of the Ohio Rules for Education of Handicapped Children and the State Department of Developmental Disabilities. Along with the students in the workshops there are also a series of preschool aged children that participated in the art workshops.
“It is a great feeling as a teacher to be able to put our students in a situation where you get to see them teacher. The sincerity in how they worked with each student, the appreciation they seem to have for being there, and how well they represented everything we hope our kids are was the best part for me as their teacher. In four hours we were able to spend time with children as young as 4 to kids the same age as some of our high school students. I truly think you carry experiences like this with you for a long time and our students will always be a small part of this with them. It’s the gratifying feeling of being a teacher for a day. We are fortunate that our administration allows us to go out and give our students opportunities like this. We are in a great place as a district with the support of a community and how they support our art program as a whole. From Mrs. Marino’s Walk the Rock Project, Ms. Toth’s middle school lego contest, this year’s new paper mache unveiling by Mr. MacMillan and Mrs. Lockovich at parent teacher conferences, and especially our trips to Fairhaven.”- Josh MacMillan, HHS Art Teacher.
