Ms. Donovan from Pittsburgh PA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Art Matters

My students need sensory paint, tote bags, a collage kit, and other new art materials to express themselves in a creative way.

My Students

My students come from many different cultural backgrounds and a diverse area in our school district. They display varying skills, abilities and knowledge while some students are bilingual. Our classroom strives to provide an engaging, fun and safe environment while meeting the needs of each child.

My students participate in a center-based classroom with some students identified as having a disability.

They range from 3-5 years old and are like sponges at this stage in the learning process. My students are imaginative, creative and are building many foundational blocks of knowledge to carry with them through their education.

My Project

My students need and deserve to use quality, engaging art materials in their art classes. From bright sensory foam paints and beautiful colors of fabric mosaics, art projects will be exciting and students will use materials they may have never known existed.

My preschoolers love to tinker and build and create and design.

I am always amazed at the things they create given the time and materials to follow their imagination, including rocket ships or an elevator for their LEGO person. I can't wait to see what they create with the wood bits from Kaplan. the kids will use craft fluffs to create three-dimensional and textured craft projects. They can pull them apart to make wispy clouds, snowdrifts, beards, animal tails and hair they will decorate their own craft tote bag that they can keep in their cubby.

Your donation will help purchase these engaging art supplies and open a door to a world of learning and imagination that my students so desperately need. Giving my students the correct supplies for art will teach them things such as creativity, sportsmanship, and teamwork - which are things that they may not learn otherwise. My students deserve the world and with your help, I may be able to give them a little piece of it!
