Colorblind No More!Bring Color Back to Art Class

My students need two colorblind correcting glasses to assist them in class. This will give them not only the joy of color, but independence and increased confidence.

My Students

We come from a small, mid-western town where lots of farming and Christian families come together to help run our community. We also love watching our boys play high school football. Turns out my most recent color blind student is a football player. Now, I've had color blind students before, but there was something about this one that stuck with me.

One day I looked up from my desk to find students helping this young man pick out colored pencils.

He was squinting over the box trying to read the little labels for each color, so he could find the correct one. And I couldn't grasp what it would be like to not be able to see the true color. My job depends on it. I'm an art teacher! So, I promised him if I could find a way to get these glasses we would go out to the football field this spring and for the first time, he could see how beautifully green it is. He would see the orange on his jersey that he's worn so many times. He would see a whole new world unbeknownst to him. He could pick out his own colored pencils!

My Project

Colorblind correcting glasses will help my students achieve success through the ease of their own sight. Students won't have to rely on help when picking out materials. Not only will it create a sense of independence and pride, but they will be able to enjoy the sight of their work so much more.

What a beautiful world we live in and to think people aren't able to see it.

These glasses will give my students the chance to witness the beauty we often take advantage of. Not only for the colorful nature that surrounds them but for the assignments they've worked so hard on, too.
