Arting All The Time!

My students need a projector screen and mount, supply storage, canvases, a teaching easel and pad, and paint cups and brushes to begin implementing our painting lesson!

My Students

Art has always been seen as an educational outlet for my students and it is my goal as their teacher to provide them with as many experiences into the art world as possible.

My students are under-served, under-performing inner city middle school and high school girls.

They are 65% African-American, 30% Latin-American, and 5% other. They are of lower socioeconomic standing, resulting in 99% of the school being on free or reduced price lunch. The majority of my students come from single-parent homes, with many living with an extended family member, be it a grandmother, aunt, or sister. Despite these challenges, many of my students are outspoken, very opinionated, and willing to share their perspective, but operate several grade-levels below their current grade. It is our school's goal to provide girls and young women with a rigorous college preparatory education focused on science, technology, engineering, and math in a supportive environment that nurtures self confidence, inspires leadership, encourages critical thinking, and promotes academic excellence. We offer an extended school day, extended school year, within small learning group environment.

My Project

The art classroom at our school, that both my students and I feel so absolutely blessed to have, is lacking some essential equipment that the my students could truly benefit from. A projector screen and mount will give us the opportunity to use our projector for learning experiences without having to erase valuable information from our dry eraser board. Storage for art materials and construction paper will free up valuable classroom space while giving the my students some organizational order. A teaching easel and pad will offer me the opportunity to do more teaching demonstrations for my students. Extra art supplies will ensure we have enough supplies to be able to finish off the year artfully productive!

My students are very energetic and love the opportunity to put their creativity to the test.

I truly believe that by bringing these resources into the classroom it will help them to bring their talent to a whole new light in a way they have never had the opportunity to experience!
