Creating Art in Comfort

Help me give my students art stools for greater comfort in the art studio!

My Students

Creating art can be very exciting and rewarding for students! Every year I teach a group of 9th grade students. It's very rewarding for me to see students come in with very little experiences in art excel and participate in activities they never thought they were capable of doing. In Visual Arts I, they begin with learning the basic foundations of art and create some pretty amazing works of art! Seeing my students show up each day for class eager to learn what we are going to do next keeps me energized and searching for ways to raise the bar for them with each challenging project!

Art class gives students an opportunity to use art to express themselves, be creative, think outside the box, construct/build objects, and discover new things.

My students are very talented and work hard to create artworks using a variety of different medias! At the end of each year we celebrate our student accomplishments by displaying their art work at the Annual Spring Student Art Show for parents and the community to view.

My Project

Art Stools will provide more space for students to work and thrive in a creative environment! Our current workspace is very small and there is little room to move around and create art without getting into another students workspace!

Art Stools will provide greater comfort and space for my students to create art!

Art provides hands on activities and real world experiences that will help students learn a skill/craft! These skills are used to create the beautiful world we live in. Artists design buildings, parks, cars, homes, furniture and many of the everyday objects we use daily! Please Support the Arts!
