Mrs. LopezTaylor from Houston TX is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Everything You Can Imagine is Real

My students need basic school and art supplies such as paint brushes, paper, glue, scissors, markers, and wiggly eyes for an awesome school year.

My Students

I would love to expose my pre-k students to art, design, and culture they would otherwise never have the chance to experience but it is quite difficult to do projects when less than half my class of 25 brought in school supplies.

I have 25 bright, inspiring, hilarious, and creative students.

They are eager to learn, love music, art, and reading. Their favorite thing besides story time is painting. For many of my students, my classroom is the first time they have ever painted or have been exposed to art and design. Many of their families cannot afford the basic of school supplies. Only a third has brought in notebooks and pencils. In this first month of school we've been learning colors and letters. They learned yellow through Van Gogh's Starry Night and sunflowers, blue through Matisse and Picasso, the primary colors through Miro, Andy Warhol, and Pop Art. We've looked at Paul Rand's and Saul Bass's logos and picked out letters.

My Project

I want to continue to expose my students to the world of art and design all around them but we need supplies so they can get their hands dirty. There's only so much a PowerPoint can do for engagement. My pre-k students need a variety of art materials such as paint brushes, paper, glue, scissors, markers, and wiggly eyes to grow as future artists and designers.

By donating art supplies to my class, you can help my future artists and designers have the supplies they need to be creative daily!

Thank you in advance for any help, smiles, and inspiration you'll bring to my classroom.
