The student population at our school is very diverse. 100% of students receive free breakfast and lunch. We do more with less, which can be difficult with a limited art supply budget. Students have a huge love for visual art, and I would like to provide them with the best art experience possible. Teachers provide a wide range of after-school clubs and activities, such as arts, crafts, drama, anime, calligraphy, and sports.
Our campus is a neighborhood school in South Philadelphia serving over 650 students and their families in 7th through 12th grade.
Students enjoy a strong sense of community and belonging in a safe environment, supported by caring and committed teachers and staff who return year after year. Along with a rigorous academic program, our students have opportunities for internships, athletics and a variety of after-school programs in preparation for high school and post-secondary success. Every student has a clear path after graduation, whether enrolling in a 4-year university, or entering the workforce.
We are currently running out of these essential painting supplies for my art classes and are in need of paint brushes, ceramic brushes and skin tone acrylic paint colors. Most of the brushes have hardened due to overuse, broken, or are falling apart. We are in need of new paint brushes so that my students can learn about color theory and how to mix colors. Students will be able to produce quality work with newer supplies. We use the paint brushes for both watercolor and acrylic painting mediums. Students in multiple grade levels create portraits, abstract paintings, quote paintings and color theory introductory projects.
