Many of my students are unable to express themselves orally or through writing. Art is the perfect compromise! Through culturally explorative art projects, my students will learn about past and present, as well as cultures from around the world, while having fun at the same time. From brightly colored Mexican-inspired murals, to Aboriginal masks from Africa, these art supplies will help students get a sense of who they are and where they come from! These culturally-based projects will connect students to the countries they descended from in a way that is hands-on and fun! For a lot of these students, school is their "safe zone." It is a place for them to feel loved, appreciated, and seen. Many of these students are desperate for attention, with siblings and working parents. They need an outlet to feel noticed. Art is the healthiest way of letting out your emotions, showing off your skills, gaining confidence in yourself, and practicing "good listening skills." By donating, you are helping to provide the necessary supplies: brushes, paints, paper, oil pastels, etc...that will allow my class the opportunity to participate in these amazing, culturally relevant art projects!
