Ms. Vogt from Buckeye AZ is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

“Earth” Without “Art” Is Just “Eh”

My students need basic supplies such as glue, watercolors, and drawing paper to unleash their creativity in art class.

My Students

As an art teacher, my students inspire me to be creative, resourceful, and to always think outside the box. These special individuals range from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Many of them are English Language Learners and many come from low-income households.

My students often tell me they don’t have access to art materials at home so I take my time with them very seriously, knowing it may be the only time they have access to paint, crayons, markers, or even paper.

No matter their background, these student are all uniquely gifted artists with their own strengths and abilities and I strive to prove that to them every day.

My Project

Art historian Ananda Coomaraswamy once said "The artist was not a special kind of man, but every man a special kind of artist." Through a variety of projects and materials I try to show my students that they are all artists. Some of them are not confident drawers, but they may excel at sculpture. Some of them dislike painting, but they may be exceptional photographers.

My ultimate goal as an art teacher is to create an environment where these individuals feel comfortable expressing themselves and experimenting with different types of art.

With something as simple as glue, we can create a variety of objects, with papier-mâché, build structures, make collages, etc. With liquid watercolors we can learn a variety of painting techniques. With Twisteez sculpture wire we can create anything our imaginations come up with.

These items will help me engage hundreds of young artists with a variety of projects that embrace diverse strengths and abilities.
