My Students

ART IS IMPORTANT! For some students, Art is their motivation for coming to school and an area where they have success or excel. This is what I would like to provide for my students. I would also like to make sure they have what they need to succeed.

Working as a middle school art teacher in a high poverty area, many of my students' families struggle to get the essentials needed for school.

At our school, one of the essentials is a proper uniform. I work at a uniformed school and each student is required to wear a uniform daily. Appearance and cleanliness are very important to my students. Some of my students do not have the support needed to drive them to do their best. Even with this disadvantage, many are still eager to learn and love to express and demonstrate their creativity and art skills. This drive and determination is what makes me excited and motivated to teach them. Unfortunately, due to lack of funds, the school is not able to supply the students with all the tools needed to be the most successful young artist they can be.

My Project

I am requesting aprons for the young artists in my Visual Arts class. With these aprons, my students will be able to freely express themselves without being concerned with soiling their clothing. These aprons will serve as protection for my students' clothing while they are creating their amazing and original artwork using acrylic paint, watercolor, and clay.

Your donation will make it possible for my students to enjoy art worry-free.

They will be less concerned about making a mess and ruining their clothing, and more focused on doing their best.
