Description

My name is Adam Johnson, but my students call me Mr. Johnson. I loved drawing and painting as a child, but I really got into the visual arts when I started painting with my middle school students in the South Bronx ten years ago. The math curriculum I was given was not engaging students and I had trouble building relationships with them. I started integrating drawing, designing and painting into my lessons and began an after school art club. My students’ self-esteem increased, they fostered new thinking strategies and I noticed an improvement in their sense of identity. We also built strong trusting relationships. I grew as an artist along with my students. I continue to paint, mainly with spray paint, with my students and at home in South Minneapolis. Painting is a way for me to express my emotions, beliefs, hopes and fears.
