Every Child Is an Artist (Part 9)

Help me give my students art supplies and classroom basics for distance learning, including colored pencils, markers, crayons, and sketchbooks.

My Students

My students come from a variety of different backgrounds and bring a rich array of cultures to our school. More than 90% speak another language outside school. We are a Title I school in a low-income community and not all students have basic supplies to engage in distance learning.

My students are clever, creative, and enthusiastic about learning.

They would benefit from a variety of classroom resources to help increase their success in our newly established distance remote learning platform.

My Project

Students will work with a variety of art materials provided including markers, color pencils, pastels, watercolors, and collage materials, and will explore themes such as nature, animals, famous artists, architecture, identity, and more.

The art materials students will receive will allow students to express their creative voices and will provide them with an outlet to work through these especially challenging times.

Most of my students do not have basic art supplies at home. Help me make this a reality for my students. These students and their families will be extremely grateful and excited to learn.
