My Students

Art will change students and my students need the arts to discover their own potential as they face many hardships daily as the school is extremely high poverty. My school is a Title I (100% free breakfast and lunch) school where students face many challenges before even entering the school building.

The students need the arts in order to discover their own potential and to see that there are other perspectives and opportunities outside of their environment.

Art is a visual language, and the work they create will help students in all academics, as they will be writing, sketching, and designing daily. I hope that the arts will be able to empower students to see their potential.

My Project

The school year is off to a great start! Our Exploring Art class focus this year is on "personal narratives" and the stories of ourselves. We are in need of some new classroom basics including new heavy duty adjustable 3 hole punches and new staplers/ staples.

Although these are "classroom basics", they are materials which are used by hundreds of students daily .

The students have been busy creating their sketchbooks- using the hole punches we had, but sadly with much use have broken. I am hoping Donors Choose will be able to assist us with new punches and staplers.
