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

Awesome Aspiring Artists

Help me give my students some basic art supplies to keep their awesome art projects going! We have less than what we need to keep things going and so I appreciate any and all support I can get!

My Students

Where do I even begin? I am constantly inspired by my students, their creativity, and their ability to use the very few materials we have in the classroom to work with. As a young teacher I've been pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable they make my job; they are always excited to get into the art room and that makes me excited to teach them some new techniques to help fulfill their artist practice.

Everyday I am in awe of what these kids are able to make with their artworks; creativity, hard work, learning, and fun abound!

I want to do whatever is within my power to make sure my kids succeed and have everything they need to do so.

My Project

These materials would help my students to have very basic, baseline materials that every art classroom should have! I am asking for basics like pencils and erasers but also some class paints so that we can begin to work on projects that can incorporate color without it having to only ever be crayons. These materials listed would give us a great foundation of supplies so that we can start making quality artwork that lives up to the talent of these fine artists that I have the pleasure of calling my students! It's a gift to be able to teach these kids and so I'd like to have some supplies for them to give it forward to them in the way that they have given me so much. They inspire me everyday!
