My Students

My 3rd grade students are intelligent, inquisitive, and very motivated to learn. They are also from a high-poverty neighborhood and are at risk for academic failure. Most eat both breakfast and lunch at school and have no one at home to help with their homework. Fourteen of my students are English Learners who have recently immigrated to America.

My students do not have the advantages so many of us take for granted.

They rarely have the opportunity to travel, explore, or experience nature. A handful have been to Tahoe, San Francisco, or Disneyland, but most can only hope that someday they will see the ocean or the snow or the Pirates of the Caribbean.

One thing they all have in common is a love of art and music. They jump at any opportunity to build or create!

My Project

Oil pastels, watercolor paints, and colored pencils are mediums used by real artists, but they are not always available to students. Most art in high poverty schools is limited to crayons and construction paper, and even those are in limited supply.

Every child deserves the opportunity to create meaningful art.

Having access to the kinds of supplies real artists use will allow my students to express themselves and explore their talents.

These art supplies will inspire my students to experiment with blending and texture. Multicultural colors will enable them to produce art that is representative of themselves and their cultures and show how they view the world around them.
