Creating a Space to Create Art, Part 2

My students need 7 adjustable, 24" wide tables to transform the computer lab into a multi-use space, allowing my students to receive art instruction on a daily basis.

My Students

Art can coax even the shyest student out of their shell. It opens up new avenues of communication to students who are unable to use words, whether they are shy, English Language Learners, or students with autism.

My students attend a public school in a high poverty area.

Over 80% of our students receive free or reduced lunch, and 30% of our students are English Language Learners. Our truly diverse student body is comprised of students from all over the world. Currently, my students do not have access to an arts program at our school. We believe that our students need a well-rounded education in order to be successful and confident 21st Century scholars.

My Project

I am requesting 24" wide, adjustable height tables that will fit into the space we have managed to carve out in the computer lab. This allows for a class of 28 students to work, with four students seated comfortably at a table. The ability to adjust the height allows these tables to be used with all grades in K-5. With these tables, the room transforms into a space dedicated to the teaching of art and technology. Having this dedicated space makes the subject of art real and shows the students that we are serious about their well-rounded education and creating a time and place for them to express themselves creatively.

All students should have access to creating and learning about the visual arts, but sadly in the age of high stakes testing and state-mandated minutes in math and reading instruction, this is not always the case.

My school is working to rectify this, so that we can honor the learning of all students. To do so, we need your help in creating a space that allows for the teaching of the visual arts.
