Ms. Werner from Dearborn MI is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Artists at Work!

My students need the Stow and Go Art Easel because space in our classroom is limited and this will allow students the ability to get their own supplies easily as they create paintings!

My Students

My goal is for all of my students to be well prepared to enter Kindergarten in the Fall. Since this is the first school experience these children have, I want to make it as positive and engaging as possible! By having more materials, I hope to increase their abilities in all academic and social areas.

All of my students come from low-income households and are learning English as their second language.

They are very energetic and creative children who love to explore new materials and ideas. We are lucky to be in a school district where they truly value early childhood education. We use a curriculum that focuses on academics but also on the whole child. By also teaching them social-emotional skills and problem solving strategies, we can help prepare them for overall success in the future!

My Project

Our classroom is tight on space and the easel we had in our room was too large and was breaking. My students also love being able to pump their own paint and create different colors by mixing them up. The Stow and Go Easel would be a perfect fit in our room as it is a great use of space.

The goal is for our students to learn independence and by having the materials right under the easel, it will allow students to become artists all on their own!

The paint pumps will replace broken ones that we had. Right now, the students cannot pump paint from the gallon size jugs because of this. The easel will easily store all the materials for painting - paint gallons, brushes, smocks, etc. This will free up some shelf space in my art area for other important materials.
