My Students

We need paint and clay supplies in order to continue our learning in the art classroom and meet our state standards of learning!

My middle school students absolutely LOVE art and are so excited about what this year will bring in the art classroom.

My students rarely get to build and sculpt with real clay materials and are really interested in learning about the clay medium. They also love to paint and are SUPER excited about our yearly ceiling tile paintings that we do each year. It is a great way for them to show off their talent and improve the atmosphere in our school. I teach 230 students in grades 6-8. We are located in a very poor, rural area with a high unemployment rate.

My Project

These supplies will allow my students to explore different types of mediums we do not normally get to learn about. Painting is always their favorite part of the art curriculum and allows them to use vivid colors and express themselves! Sculpting and pottery is also another favorite for the students. Having clay would allow me to teach them clay processes and other sculpting techniques which is also part of our standards of learning.

Having these materials donated to our classroom is so important to my students because they will be able to have materials to express themselves through the artistic process.

These materials will be used by all of my students and enhance the atmosphere of my classroom.
