I am an art teacher for 2 rural schools. I would like to give my 5th graders in both schools, an opportunity to use a media that they have not had the training or the resources to experience. These students will go on to middle school next year and most of them will never take art again. I would like to give this new opportunity.
With your help these students will learn how to mix primary colors to create secondary colors, proper proportions to mix hair and skin tones, and tints of color to create a self- portrait to make them proud.
I need tempera washable paints. This paint mixes well, dries fast and washes easily out of their clothes. These students have not had the opportunity or the resources to create a self- portrait with paint.
Thank you for helping me to make this a reality for students who have not had the opportunity to do a self-portrait with paint. I appreciate your support of the public school art education. I hope you will feel this is an admirable way to help the "ARTS!" for children.
