Ms. McGinnis from Dayton OH is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creative Leaders

Help me give my students the supplies so they have the best opportunities to use watercolor, markers, and pastels. These will help us finish the school year and start the new school year great.

My Students

My students are an energetic and exciting group. They love hands-on projects and working with a variety of media. They just need encouragement to try their best. They have a variety of interests and abilities that I try to help them push forward.

I am trying to teach them problem-solving skills that will benefit them in the future.

I am hoping to build future leaders with all the skills that art can give them like confidence, creativity, decision-making, concentration, and collaboration.

They enjoy all the opportunities to experiment I am able to give them.

My Project

These materials will help me give the best materials possible to give as much variety and opportunities in my lesson planning to build their confidence, creativity, and decision-making. I want to help build life skills to help them in all areas of life. When students have materials needed, the students will have more opportunities in the creative process to express themselves fully.

I know what it's like to have limited resources.

I hope to give my students the opportunity to experience as much possible while they are in my classroom. They will be able to do more with watercolor painting and drawing.
