My Students

These elementary students are among the most diverse in the nation. At our school alone, there are 83 languages and dialects spoken. They live in one of the highest crime areas and in some of the highest poverty levels with 78% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch in an urban district.

These children are eager to learn and be 21st-century ready leaders to become lifelong learners.

These students could use a variety of materials to assist them in filling learning gaps of our lowest Title I learners and English Language students along with opportunities to challenge our Gifted and Talented students. Next fall we will be with limited outside Art instruction, therefore I would like to integrate art myself into STEM, and give students the necessities they need/want.

My Project

Please help my students to create Masterpieces! We have lost out Art program and only get access to visual arts once a month. We would like to create Masterpieces with acrylic paints on canvas, and pastels on canvas boards. We need paints, pastels, canvas, canvas boards, and brushes.

Students have requested a chance to show their creative thinking by creating Masterpieces to share with their school and their families.

Students have asked to do acrylic paintings on canvas to show their creativity. Then to learn how to use oil pastels on canvas board. Thank you for your support to create Masterpieces!
