Bring Back Art

My students need Yarka Student Watercolor set for painting.

My Students

We have a large school with over 1200 students. There are over 150 5th graders! The students come from various backgrounds: Middle Eastern, Indian, Asian, Europe, etc.

The cost of living here is very high for families so we rely on outside support to bring in classroom supplies.

Ronald Reagan stated, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. " Invest in our future!

My Project

Thanks for reading my request. We need sets of watercolors in order to paint like Monet. We will use these in my lesson on Renaissance Art.

Here's a great quote on the importance of Art.

"A lot of what artists do is tell stories. They help us make sense of our world, and they broaden our experience and understanding. The arts enable us to imagine the unimaginable, and to connect us to the past, the present, and the future, sometimes simultaneously."

Albert Einstein said that “I’m enough of an artist to draw freely on my imagination, which I think is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
