Mr. Diedrich from Chicago IL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Color My Class!

My students need permanent markers for their next art project. We are creating an illusion and need color. With the assorted pack we can focus on complementary colors, color triads, and more.

My Students

Our wonderful school is in a high poverty area. Ninety per cent of our thirteen hundred students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most of my students are first generation Americans. They are polite, well mannered, hard working students who come from great families. Their parents push them to get the education that they never had. They come to school everyday and try their best, hoping for a better future.

Our students receive art once a week for an hour and I would like to utilize the most of this time.

My Project

We are creating a illusion in art class. The art project uses Math to create curves which appear to be coming off the paper. I have done this project five years ago and the students loved it. I have all the supplies except for permanent markers. It would be nice to have the students be able to hang up colored projects around the school. I will also be displaying the projects at our annual art show in the spring. It would be greatly appreciated for your help. I have images of previous projects if you would like to see them.
