Art Outside the Box of Crayons

My students need tagboard paper.

My Students

All of our children like to see their artwork displayed so they can show others with pride that they can accomplish something, even if it might not be reading, writing or math problems. Artwork can be improved with the judicious use of colored tagboard matting that compliments the art.

Our students are inner city children with parents who are struggling to meet their basic needs.

There is no extra money for extracurricular activities unless it is provided by the school. The art they get in school is the only time they are able to use art supplies to learn how to express creativity. The end products of two-dimensional efforts need to be properly displayed to enable the students to show pride of accomplishment in something, even if they are unsuccessful with the academics.

My Project

Go into any art gallery or museum and you will see works of art that are matted and framed. Such treatment is essential for the proper presentation of two dimensional work. A good piece of art can be displayed so it looks like a great work of art just with the judicious use of matting with colors that complement the work within. The colored tagboard requested is not within the budget of my school and so I am appealing to donors to help us get what we need to present great works of art.

Pride of accomplishment is important to children who do not have material possessions or stable family situations.

Proper display of art is a relatively easy way to give students something in which they can be proud.
