My Students

I teach in a town that has students with very little exposure to the arts. The majority of my students have never been to an art museum or gallery. Yet my students create some of the most imaginative and creative work I have ever seen. My students are hard working and eager to learn and explore new techniques, strategies, history, and cultures associates with art.

My class is structured for students to explore their creativity and imagination.

I also help give voice to their thoughts and ideas through art! They sure have a lot to say!

My Project

All of the supplies are essential classroom supplies needed for my students to be able to create amazing art. At this point in the school year essential supplies are already starting to run low! These supplies will also keep noses dry and desks cleaned going into the cold and flu season these items are essential. Our schools are underfunded and require some special support to make things happen. Please support my classroom; your help will not go unnoticed! Thank you in advance for your careful consideration! We are so grateful to have a global community that cares and wants successful classrooms!
