Amazing Art Students Need Art Supplies

My students need colored pencils, markers, drawing chalk, crayons, glue sticks, and paper for Visual Art classes.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like to have a brand new box of crayons or colored pencils or markers to take to school for Art class? With 400 students using the same materials in the Art room each week, our supplies are nearly depleted. My very creative Art students need drawing media and paper.

My school is a high poverty inner city elementary school in North Carolina where 98% of the students qualify for free- or reduced-price lunch.

I teach Art to Kindergarten students through Fifth grade. My students come from diverse backgrounds -- African American, Caucasian, Hispanic, and Asian. The students love their experiences in Art class and I love teaching them. My students face many challenges each day both inside and outside the classroom. Most of the students attending our school live in poverty. They have few material possessions, books, or resources for enrichment at home. Art class is an exciting opportunity for them to use markers, crayons, chalk, colored pencils, and other materials not available to them at home. They anticipate each class with so much enthusiasm. They enjoy learning new techniques and procedures, and using a variety of media.

My Project

Art education is especially important at my school because of the limited opportunities for enrichment and cultural experiences available to them at home. The quality of art produced by my students is as good as any elementary school in our city. I proudly display their work in the hallway "gallery." I want my students to have the materials to become more confident in their art skills. I want them to have the same art experiences available as students in affluent schools have. My students need to have a variety of media to use in Art class. Their enthusiasm and creativity have no boundaries. I don't want to limit their achievements because of limited Art supplies. My students work so hard on their art projects and they would be thrilled to have new colored pencils, drawing pencils, chalk, crayons, drawing pencils, markers, and drawing paper to use in Art class. These supplies would be used by more than 400 students each week at my school.

Your donation will impact 400 students each week at a high poverty elementary school.

My students face many challenges each day both at school and at home. I want my classroom to be a place where they can successfully express themselves through Art. They are so proud of their accomplishments and look forward to having their work up in the hallway gallery. My amazing Art students really need Art supplies for their continued success in Art class!
