My Students

As the art teacher, in a high needs elementary school in New York, I really want to build a top-notch art department. The students are eager and excited about learning.

Our school is located in a high poverty area and many of our students live in the neighboring housing projects.

We always have high attendance and the students are excited to learn and explore new subjects in the arts and literacy. The students at our school may not have the same opportunities as many NY students, but there is a team of hard-working teachers bridging that gap. I want the students to have a quality art education and the requested materials would help our students achieve their best artwork and develop as young artists.

My Project

I'm requesting basic art supplies for my students to use during centers in our art room. We use tape, erasers, scissors and so much more daily in the art room. The arts teach so many important lessons. I watch as my students become more confident and learn to take chances. They learn that at times there is no right answer and that thinking creatively can help you understand many ways to solve a problem.

The materials that you will be funding will help my students learn how to explore materials and techniques at their own pace.

We recently rearranged the entire art room so that our students experience a true studio experience. The students now work in the Drawing, Painting or Sculpture centers/studios. The scissors and hole punches will be used in both the drawing and sculpture center. The origami paper has recently become a big hit and I have a small group of fans that practice whenever they can. The scotch tape is used almost every day in the sculpture center. The erasers are a basic supply we need everyday.

Thank you in advance for helping my students. Not only will your donation help them explore the arts and gain self confidence, your donation sends a positive message of generosity. My students will be truly touched that someone they don't know cares about their education. Thank you!
