Art Matters to Second Graders, Too!

Help me give my students an art instructor to visit our classroom and give them an lush art experience.

My Students

I serve a diverse group of second graders that live in a low-income community where making ends meet is a daily struggle.

Over 70 percent of the students at our Title I school receive free lunches.

We serve students from all around the world. In our class alone, students are first or second generation from Guatemala, Figi, the Philippines, Mexico, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. We live in a central location for accessibility to countless encounters with nature, technology, art, and other enriching worldly aspects that build a well-rounded student. Unfortunately, our families often do not have the finances or resources to expose their children to the lush experiences available in central California.

My Project

During the last school year, the art teacher at our school was reassigned. Our art teacher now only services our school site one day a week and works exclusively with only the intermediate level students. Unfortunately, this means that my second grade students do not get any art instruction for the duration of the entire school year.

Art creates memories, helps students to manage emotions, and provides a modality of motivation leading to confidence development.

While I do many hands-on arts and crafts, it would benefit my students greatly to have a physical, trained art instructor visit our classroom in order to teacher art theory and application. With this donation, students will be able to have a real, live artist visit our class for an hour and a half lesson which will render an art project that they can take home and share with their families. Please help us reach this goal!
