My students are creative and bursting with ideas. Unfortunately, my supply closet is not bursting. I see around 600 K-5th graders a week; they receive art once a week with me during 45 minute classes. My children love to create art and get excited each time I bring out a new material for them to try. Many students do not get the opportunity to make, or look at, art outside of school, so the time they have in my room is extremely special to them. I make sure that every student that comes to my room is exposed to a wide variety of mediums (painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture, etc.), as well as materials (tempera paint, clay, oil pastels, etc.). My students learn best through exploration and their own discoveries with art materials (instead of step-by-step instruction), so offering them a wide variety of quality supplies to explore and experiment with is very important.
