Ms. Lima from San Pablo CA is requesting art supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

All Preschoolers' Gotta Paint

Help me give my students ongoing access to art supplies so they can have a preschool experience that's developmentally appropriate, and not limited to a screen on a tablet, nor dependent on family income.

My Students

The current pandemic has temporarily taken away from my students the classroom experience, and messy art projects that helped them engage physically, intellectually and emotionally with their environment and grow.

By providing basic art supplies to all my families, I hope to help eliminate inequity and make sure ALL my pre-k students can access formative experiences they're missing by not being inside the physical classroom.

Art supplies in the hands of children provide emotional support, fine motor development, stimulate conversations, scientific observations and bring joy during difficult times.

My Project

I work in a low income district and students at my school qualify for free lunch. Under the pressures of this pandemic, families who were already struggling with providing for basic necessities before covid-19, are now under even greater under pressures.

While all my students' families work hard to support their children during distance learning, how can they provide for a rich preschool experience when , at home, they do not have the supplies to replicate simple everyday prek activities such as painting, rolling dough, sculpting and drawing?

In this time of stress, access to materials for development of skills and mental health relief should be granted to those children who need it the most. Art in preschool is gold. Help my 3 and 4 year-old students with Autism by providing materials that help them grow cognitively and emotionally.
