Art is a very important tool that teachers can use to help our students show what they know. Unfortunately, our school does not have an art teacher nor sufficient art supplies in order to accomplish many projects that our students hope to do. This past fall, our 2nd graders researched communities of people and how their needs and wants are based on many different factors. Starting next month, our students will shift their project to investigating the needs and wants of insects and plants based on different ecosystems. Our students hope to demonstrate their knowledge through a multi-media mural of how all of our communities are connected by designing their artistic display with the support of volunteer artists from their community. These specific art materials that are requested will satisfy some of the absence of artistic opportunities in our school. The brushes that we have currently are old and broken, these brushes will give our students the quality and quantity of tools they need. In addition, we do not have sufficient paint to begin any art projects and the permanent medium will mix with the paint to withstand outdoor weather. The permanent medium is also the reason why we need aprons for all of our students in order to protect their clothing! The step ladders are necessary to reach all parts of the mural and help our students feel like true artists. Another purpose this mural will fulfill is an everlasting beautification of our very depressing portables, which have been an eyesore since they were put in. These murals that will be placed on the outside of the portables and will be a sign of the pride and knowledge that our students can look upon every day!
