Ms. Yi from San Jose CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Color The World

My students need basic materials like oil pastels, watercolor paint, crayons, and colored pencils - a wide variety of materials encourages a wider range of explorative creativity

My Students

My students face harsh challenges both in and outside the classroom in their low income/high poverty neighborhood.

To fall into the trap of rejection makes young students hold these wounds hard and close to their hearts.

It is our duty as educators to redefine the concept of acceptance and healing in order for our students to develop confidence and inspire them to become leaders.

My kids are clever, curious, and insanely creative - my classroom is a safe space within a safe space, celebrating the beautiful intersection of identity, community, and culture.

Finding funding and time is difficult to allocate for the arts at our school; I get a budget of $250 for the entire year for 481 students.

I hope you will help me in this journey to encourage young children to become their smartest, strongest, and boldest selves.

My Project

My students are wildly creative and have incredible imaginations to tap into to fill the gaps when they are short of resources.

I can't wait to see what their projects will manifest into with an even wider range of materials with which to create.

The familiar basics - crayons, markers, colored pencils - they will utilize to easily transfer their ideas to paper. Other materials - pipe cleaners, pom poms, watercolors, etc - will be used to challenge them into using different mediums in order to express themselves.

They are the best kids in the whole world - wild, thirsty for knowledge, and demanding of answers - and they would be so grateful for the opportunity to express themselves as colorfully as they can.
