After traveling extensively throughout the world, I settled down in Oklahoma and will be teaching elementary students about art and the world!
There is a lack of funding in Oklahoma and, as a result, my students haven't properly been introduced to an exciting art curriculum including ceramics, painting, weaving, etc!
The students in our district often have difficulty in buying supplies. At home they often have difficulty with parental support, but at school they have a thirst to learn! They want to be treated with respect and have teachers believe in them enough to supply good materials! Students at my school are inquisitive, compassionate, and creative.
Your funds will go towards helping an entire school learn about not just art, but all the characteristics that come along with it! They will learn art history, geography, and recycling. And most importantly, they will learn to be proud of themselves, that different is wonderful, and that mistakes are just another opportunity to be something beautiful.
I want my students to know about the world through art and we will create artworks inspired by world-famous artists, as well as locals.
These students haven't had the opportunity to travel, but through learning art history, we will "travel" to every country the artist was from!
My students need supplies like paper, brushes, and watercolor cakes. These will allow us to paint like Van Gogh and print like Rembrandt. We will explore collage making, print making, painting, drawing, weaving and hopefully more!
With your donations an entire school of 750 students will have the opportunity to express themselves and learn through art.
