My Students

I teach 2 visual art classes each day with 30 students in each class. The school I work at is the 3rd largest school in my district I have a wonderful mix of different grade levels and art level students between grades 9-12. Myself and my partnering art teacher have many talented art students who are in need of resources that will help to display their work on a professional level.

These students exhibit talents and ambition well above what I have seen during my 10 years teaching art education.

Our school and district are fairly well funded arts wise, but there are some resources that our school could benefit from that are currently being received by outsourcing. Help us to gain the resources necessary to be able to exhibit our students visual art in our local community.

My Project

The materials listed will allow myself to frame the students artwork in-house instead of taking their artwork to a framing shop to be matted and framed. Outsourcing our student artwork to be framed has been expensive with businesses charging $30 or more for an 8x10" piece of artwork, now imagine you have 10 pieces of artwork to be framed.. Get the picture (pun intended lol). By having these materials at our school we would be able to frame numerous pieces of artwork at a lower price and also have materials that would be used several years in the future making the cost even less. Help my students and I to be able to display their artistic talents with our school and community!
