Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am the art teacher in an urban, public elementary school. I have 600 students in grades pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. We are a high needs school with limited funding.

My students love to read! I am so proud of them when they read about an artist and then talk about it with each other. I have a small art library in my room. Students love to read the books and look at the pictures.

After a while the students have read all of the art books. They have been requesting more new titles. I am so pleased that they want to read more. Unfortunately we do not have any money to buy more books. I really want them to keep their enthusiasm about reading and art. We need a set of nine books about famous artists so my students can continue to explore artists' lives.

Your donation to this project will supply my students with books about art that they are requesting. Please give my students the engaging art books they need. I know I loved to read as a child and that followed me into my adult life. I appreciate your support of the arts and literacy.
