"Art is a place for children to learn to trust their ideas, themselves, and to explore what is possible." -Maryann Kohl My elementary art classroom of imaginative children is full of such enthusiasm. On a very limited art budget, I must provide meaningful and exciting visual arts experiences for all 400 students, grades Kinder-5th. We need help to move beyond the basics of paper, crayons, and markers to introduce the tools and media that professional artists use. The introduction of more advanced art media in my classroom excites and draws in my emerging artists–giving them the spark to continue with art throughout middle and high school and hopefully into their future careers. These sharp minds need Sharpies! Sharpies may not sound like an exciting tool to you, but a Sharpie is one of the most useful tools an artist has in her toolbox. Sharpies add a bold quality to drawings, adds finishing touches to a painting, and can transform a mess into a masterpiece in just a few strokes. Sharpies are ideal because they don’t run when touched by watery paint and the bold line is the perfect thickness to make an artwork really POP. Your donation will help create artworks that the students and their parents will treasure.
