Hooray! This project is fully funded

Students will select non-profit organizations that support issues and address concerns that they deem important. Proceeds from student art sales will be equally divided and donated to the non-profit organizations. Students will learn about art materials and techniques, civic engagement, and that through art they can help individuals reliant on support from non-profits, and ultimately, benefit the future of our world. Mather High School is one of our most diverse Chicago public schools with a large number of refugee and low-income students. I teach grades 9-12 including; Art I, Studio Painting and Drawing Honors I and II, and Advanced Placement Art. I sponsor Mather's Art Club which will also participate. This project will involve an incredibly diverse group of students both culturally and academically. Large numbers of special education, ELL and gifted and talented students will collaborate. Initial numbers range between 30-50 students. Overtime, hundreds may participate. Students will create paintings, ceramics, jewelry and hand-painted children's furniture to benefit selected organizations. Students will choose from the Chicago Public School's, Combined Charities publication (non-profits goals and administrative costs are listed). Last year the following organizations received money from our art sales: Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation, Illinois Hunger Coalition, AIDSCARE, Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women's Network, Acorn, and Global Hunger Project. Students also created jewelry for the “Look Good Feel Better” workshops at Gilda's Club Chicago. I request supplies for the 2006-07 school year. These supplies will be; paint, canvas, varnish, clay, jewelry supplies and unfinished furniture. Since these supplies are consumable and this project is ongoing, any donations would be appreciated. In describing this project many have echoed the sentiment “Everyone Wins." This will provide a meaningful experience that consequently fulfills the service learning graduation requirement for our students. More importantly, impacting the future of our world and benefiting those in need are our goals. Additionally, on a personal level for the students, this encourages philanthropy, stewardship, and future civic involvement.
