Ms. K. from Dallas TX is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Drawing Boards

My students need these drawing boards in order to better teach them drawing techniques that require mobility or freedom to draw standing up. Standing allows students to have a better perspective of their drawings/grow.

My Students

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. I have students who live a privileged life with access to anything they need educationally, but I more predominantly have students who struggle to even buy a simple sketchbook at the beginning of the year because they come from a disadvantaged background, all of their after-school-job money going to help support their family or themselves. Despite this immense struggle no teenager should have to endure, my kids are shining examples of perseverance.

My Project

Drawing boards like these allow more mobility and function while drawing. By receiving these boards, I would be able to greatly widen the possibilities for instruction with my students.

In specific instances, we have to take our work and draw on the go; these boards would make working outdoors feasible and allows us to teach/develop new drawing techniques that require mobility.

Many movements in art relied heavily on the ability to take the art wherever necessary to document/create in unique locations. These boards are an easy way for students to work outside of our room.

These boards would also help facilitate how I teach perspective and proportions specifically. My Drawing III students could use these when working on figure drawing. It is difficult for new artists to keep their human forms in perspective and proportional, but if they can prop up their board and step back to inspect/check their work, they can modify their marks and move forward more confidently.
