Crayons for Creativity

Help me give my students basic art supplies like crayons which there never seems to be enough of in the art room.

My Students

My students are really creative, passionate, and highly driven individuals. They are self-motivated and talented artists. They are passionate about their craft and absorb lessons like a sponge. They have a thirst for knowledge. Their families lack the resources and knowledge to expose them to certain essentials. My district relies heavily on donations and funding for breakfast and lunch programs and school supplies. Being able to provide these crayons will really encourage my students to stay involved in their learning. They can become academically successful and engaged if they have an outlet like the arts in which they can flourish.

My Project

In September, I love opening up all of my new supplies and arranging them nice and neatly in little containers for my students to see upon their arrival at school. By the end of the week, (really the end of the day) my crayons are used up and all they are left with are crayons stubs. By mid-year, my cabinets look bare. For nearly every project my students like to brainstorm on sketch paper. They make thumbnail sketches. They write words in an organized web. Then they make a rough sketch and finally make a completed project that they might later trace with sharpie markers.

I have some really talented, ambitious, and self-motivated artists.

They are always thinking, creating, and inventing. My students inspire me daily. In the creative process, however, they also tend to deplete many of my materials and leave an amazing mess in their wake. My students are always asking me for pencils and at the end of the week, I am left with no pencils. The pencils always seem to wander off.
