My Students

My students are: resilient, creative, full of life and energy. They help to hold one another accountable and to a higher standard. Students take pride in their work; they go over and beyond what is required. My students are successful period! No matter how hard the obstacle my students will prevail.

My students may not be wealthy, but they are rich in talents and skills.

My students have a great since of humor; they will make you laugh and feel good. They are good stewards not only of their relationships, but of school supplies as well. My students are aware of their demographics. They are far too well acquainted with not having. My students are also artist so they are creative and very artsy.

My Project

Through donating these materials my students will have a greater sense of dignity because they want have to go to the bathroom just to dry their hands clean. My students will grow artistically and personally. Students will feel loved and appreciated because they will know that there are people what love them and care for what they care for. Your donations will make it possible for students artwork to be publicly displayed at art exhibitions.

The oil pastels and color pencils will play a major role in students artworks being displayed in exhibitions.

The supplies will help produce colorful and vibrant works of art. Students will be able to express themselves better. Your generosity will lead to students gratitude and their gratitude will push them to excel in all that they do.
