Mr. Shank from Canton MI is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Art Room Stools

My students need 30 - 18" stools for seating in the art room. It would help my students to more efficiently utilize their work space in the art room and update some very dated furniture. Thanks!

My Students

I have been working as the sole art teacher at a Charter school for the past 18 years. We serve a population of 745 students at a K-8 Charter school.

We have a very diverse multicultural population including Asian, Arabic, Indian and African American students.

As the only art teacher for the past 18 year I have enjoyed the rare privilege of getting to know the students and watch them grow from year to year. It is something I appreciate more as time goes on. I am always amazed at our student’s ability to meet and often surpass the different creative challenges to create amazing works of art. When I see how beautiful our halls look I am amazed and it makes all the hard work worth it.

My Project

I am looking to update my very well used chairs in my art room with 30 new 18" stools for my students to sit. These stools would make a big difference in the way students are able to work and maneuver around the art room.

We have a very small art room.

It is approximately 30 square feet for all grades kindergarten thru eight. Each class has approximately 28 students that rotate through one to twice a week for a 45 minute art session. We do a wide variety of materials including paint, printmaking, clay and assemblage. Having these new seats would make big difference in how we use our space.
