Mrs. Dillman from Fort Smith AR is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Makers Mold

Help me give my students access to more sculpture materials. Our students are limited to mostly found materials and ceramics. We would like to jazz up our program with a 3D printer and mold making materials.

My Students

Our school is the most racially diverse high school in the city. We are very diverse, with students from many different cultural backgrounds and about 96% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunches. Many of these children come from hard backgrounds and have difficult home lives.

We want to make art that can get our student body interested in the visual arts and that gets our community excited about our art program.

Our students are the most hardworking and giving students around, and we want to make sure that they have the materials to succeed.

My Project

Here at our high school, we are looking to build up our 3D program. We currently offer one class each of Sculpture and 3D Design, but our students are limited to mostly found materials and ceramics projects. The students in our art program are ALWAYS asking when they will get to do sculptures.

We want our students to learn about more sculpture processes and techniques by learning about mold making and 3D printing.

We currently teach ceramics, paper sculpture, cardboard sculpture and assemblage in sculpture and ceramics, but we would like to break out into some more contemporary sculpture materials.
