Ms. Potter from Albuquerque NM is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Art Room Sharing Center!

Help me give my students a Learning Shapes and Colors Activity Carpet. It will be used as a reading, sharing and learning area. The colors and shapes will be referenced throughout the day to keep classroom management great.

My Students

The students at Alvarado are incredibly hard-working and creative. They are trustworthy and respectful which is why I have chosen to make my art room an open choice studio. They come from diverse backgrounds and are of all learning abilities.

Alvarado students have the drive and creativity to make our community a more colorful, caring and fun place to live.

They deserve access to all materials and to as many visual resources as possible.

These resources will help them understand the art world and their own worlds more thoughtfully. They will build a stronger vocabulary and better bank of visual imagery.

My Project

This carpet will make a more quality learning environment and have direct impact on the content area of study. It will benefit myself as a great teaching tool, and it will look aesthetically pleasing in an art room!

Students will have a greater opportunity to share and critique their artwork, and conduct more meaningful discussions about the impact of art in our world.

Currently we do not have a great space for reading and sharing and could use a revamp!

The colors and shapes will directly relate to classroom jobs as well as classroom lessons The students will feel the impact right away. As of right now the old carpet is being torn out and will be an all tile floor, so some comfy floor space would make all the difference!
