Mrs. Larsen from Lincolnshire IL is requesting art supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Calling All Love Bugs; Let's Make Art!

Help me give my students giant coloring posters for Valentine's and St. Patrick's Day. Kwik Stix tempera paint pens, Sharpies, and glitter glue will bring color to the posters and wooden hearts, foil and transparencies will make memorable masterpieces!

My Project

This dynamic group of first graders loves to tinker and create! I love to watch their curiosity and creativity unfold as they are introduced to new art supplies and embark on new projects.

Maya Angelou said, "You can't use up creativity; the more you use, the more you have."

Students will use the wooden hearts, Sharpies, tin foil and transparency sheets to replicate stained glass. Their individuality will shine as they use the Kwik Stix paints to decorate the seasonal posters. All of their creations will be proudly displayed for them to enjoy and to inspire others creativity.
