A New Art Library for an Old School- Part 1

My students need 29 books for the art classroom so they can enhance their learning.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I have just moved to a different school, so I am trying build an art library for my new classroom. I built a great one thanks to donors like you in my last school, but left it there so that those students could continue to enjoy what you have given them. My students are smart, creative, interesting and worth as many opportunities as I can make for them with your help. I teach art to all the students at our elementary school. Our school has an extremely high population of special education students, English as a second language and low income families. I want to make sure that my students keep engaged in learning by having access to the best resources I can provide. I would like for my students to have a classroom library full of art books. These books would be for a variety of activities such as learning to draw or to read about different artists. This is a terrific opportunity to learn together and independently in the art room with different resources than are currently available. Little by little I would like to gain enough books so that students could teach the class about different techniques or artists they have researched. I would like to do lessons where each child reads about a different artist and then tries to create their own picture in the style of that artist. This is an introduction to doing a research project at the elementary level. The books I have researched and chosen are age appropriate and could be enjoyed independently by 3-5th grade and in teacher directed lessons for grades K-2. I would like to build my library in stages as to provide students with more and more books as the years go on. Also, this would be a more affordable option since an entire library would cost hundreds of dollars. With your help, together we can give these kids the credit they deserve for the fabulous work they do in school. We can help them be excited and proud of what they learn and create!
