Creative Arts - Class Supplies

Help me give my students art supplies for their creative arts class! The highlight of our class will be making handmade soaps to give as gifts to students' families.

My Students

The majority of my students are Native Alaskan: Yup'ik. My students live in a remote bush village, far from main roads and connections to the Lower 48. Our village is located near the mouth of the Yukon River (Tundra biome) and my students spend their summers subsistence hunting and fishing.

Anything that can get my students up out of their seats, thinking and problem-solving, is a good thing.

They love all the hands-on activities, from building a windmill to studying water samples. The more activity-based instruction I can provide, the more interested they are in the subject. Neither the school nor myself can afford to provide all the supplies that make great activities, so I look to DonorsChoose to make this happen.

My Project

Our school is located in rural Alaska, so whatever supplies we use need to be flown in. I am teaching a creative arts class and we need supplies for our class.

I have chosen self-contained art kits because our school is located in rural Alaska and everything we use needs to be flown in.

The kits will give students an idea of what the finished product will look like. I am looking forward to getting the soap-making kit - it will allow the students to be creative and make a useful product that they can take home and share with their families.
