Teaching Art in a middle school where my students are eager to express themselves is imperative. The school is located in a high poverty location. Most of my students come from single working parent homes that will never have an opportunity to visit art museums. My students do not have and cannot afford the materials to produce great art masterpieces. Even though my students are not living or attending a school in the best area they are eager to learn and let their creative juices flow freely. These students lack avenues to express themselves in a positive way.
For most of my students art is a mental escape from the rough reality they live in, there is no right or wrong or judgement just beauty in what they are able to create.
Oh the places they will create and the colors that will brighten their days.
My students will be using the art materials to not only get inspired but travel to Japan through their own art pieces. The chipboard and paint paper will allow my students to have a great foundation in which to create their masterpieces. The acrylic paints will enable my students to great a very vivid and colorful painting. The modeling compound will allow my students to actually understand and see first hand what texture means in art.
Please allow my students to experience art in a whole new level with the art supplies they need to have a textured masterpiece of color.
My art budget has been drastically cut in the past year. Without the help of generous donors, we can not afford even the most basic supplies. Please help me to get my students the supplies we need for a successful art project that will allow them to travel to a whole new place.
