Mrs. Burkle from Gackle ND is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Art for the Heart

My students need art supplies like Bisque mugs, biplane model kits, and a Realeather nylon hammer to be able to explore different types of art.

My Students

I teach 1st grade at a rural school located in North Dakota. Most students know everyone within the school and share a lot of the same interests. We connect the majority of our lessons to the shared experiences the students have.

My students are creative, full of questions, and very energetic.

They love hands-on projects and find ways to take things to the next level. Many of my students do not have the support or resources at home to continue their learning. I want to be able to supply the right tools in my classroom so that each student is able to apply their creative thinking to overcome different challenges.

My Project

Most of my students have only experienced art as paper and paint. With these materials, my students will be able to further explore the world of art. They will be able to understand different types of art, as well as create art themselves. Art supplies like the Bisque mugs, biplane model kits, and the leather kits will allow the students to explore different types of art that they normally do not experience.

My students will be able to express themselves through a variety of ways with these art materials.

They will be able to work with their hands and create their own masterpieces. They will be able to create leather projects such as bracelets, necklaces, and other ideas that they have. Students will also be able to create unique projects through candle making. Headphones will allow students to explore art online and listen to the ways that each type of art is special. Their love and appreciation for art will expand as they learn about the different types of art there is. All students deserve the chance to express themselves through art.
