Mrs. Bingham from Pineville KY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Budding Artists Need Room to Create

My students need 4 tables rather than desks to be able to work collaboratively on art projects, and to have sufficient room to create individual artwork.

My Students

My students are very creative. They enjoy doing hands-on art projects. They always amaze me at their artistic talents. In a school where reading and math are a top priority, it is always fun to see those who struggle academically succeed in the arts.

It is difficult for my students to gain experience in the arts because most come from poverty and are being raised by grandparents.

The only hands-on experiences they are provided to enhance their artistic abilities is at school. We live in a small coal mining community with limited jobs and experiences.

My Project

Tables will make it easier for my art students to work collaboratively in groups and still have sufficient room to create art individually. Right now my students, who come from poverty stricken homes, have a desk and I must provide classroom supplies for them to share. This is a hard task to accomplish. We make do by pushing desks together but they are usually uneven and make it hard to reach materials or work on larger projects.

These students may come from poor economics but they are some of the brightest in the state according to their rankings in state testing and other competitions.
