As an Art teacher, it is my duty and privilege to inspire and teach young artists at my school. We were making amazing art projects and having a fantastic year. Along with teaching my 600+ students, we were headed towards participation in a Spring Student Art Exhibition and a field trip to The Art Institute of Chicago. Unfortunately, the pandemic hit and changed all of that. When we began teaching remotely, it was safe to assume that my students had access to only a pencil and paper. While these tools are essential for making art, it isn’t enough. It doesn’t begin to cover the resources that they would have access to in my classroom. My goal is to create a kit of supplies- pencils, pencil sharpeners, markers, crayons, colored pencils, paints, and paintbrushes- for each student in order for them to continue mastering their craft from home. In addition to that, it’s essential to always have extra on hand- unlike common classroom materials, such as books and computers, art supplies get used up quickly and the cost of constantly replacing these supplies adds up fast! Because we don’t know what the future will look like, these kits will also help to ensure that my students are not sharing their supplies when and if we return to the classroom. As per the CDC guidelines, students cannot share supplies when we return to school. This will greatly impact how my classroom will function in the future, as well as the quantity of what is needed. When and if school does continue in the classroom, cleaning products will help to ensure that they can create art in a safe and clean environment.
