Budding Young Artists In Search of a Studio

My students need 11 tubes of paint, 5 yards of canvas, paper, brushes, markers, crayons, and other general art supplies to outfit our art studio.

My Students

One of the most important goals for all educators is to inspire young students to find and pursue their passions. For many students, these passions might not be realized in traditional core classrooms. Many students need access to creative activities in the arts.

My students attend a poorly funded public school in a low-income neighborhood.

Arts education at the school is left to teacher-created extracurricular clubs, such as mine. Despite a lack of access to resources or appropriate creative spaces, my students are still able to prove their talent and ingenuity in their artistic pursuits. Their art is unique and reflective of their community. It often serves as an outlet for my developing students to tell their own stories.

My Project

The materials I have requested will outfit a completely bare-bones art studio for my fine arts class. They will learn technique in a wide variety of medias, including pencil, pastel, watercolor, and acrylic. They will experiment with form, line, texture, and composition. They will paint and design both in-studio and outside "en plein air". The class will culminate with a self-directed study in a medium of the student's choice. Specifically, we are requesting the following materials: Painting materials (brushes, trays, paints) that will be used by cooperative groups for acrylic and watercolor paints. Canvas that will be divided amongst students and used for their final, self-directed project. General studio supplies (glue, scissors, and paper) to be used by cooperative groups during year-long instruction. Drawing supplies (markers, pencils) to be used by individual students during specific technique lessons.

Don't let arts education disappear from school.

Remember the importance of encouraging students to explore their creative side and find their own passions. Please help to ensure my students have access to quality arts education. Thank you.
