Mrs. Barrett from Hallsville TX is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Exploring Art on the Go!

Help me give my students a fully stocked, rolling art station that can move between my classrooms and organize their art supplies and properly preserve their creations by safely drying them and protecting them.

My Students

My students are such a joy to work with! They each have multiple and severe disabilities that affect their life in many ways, yet the first thing you notice is their smiles and happiness. Often they experience many combined conditions that affect gross motor, fine motor, speech, sensory processing, and social skills along with others. They are so full of wonder and curiosity, and they want to learn just like the other kids!

My students need a wide variety of art supplies, art storage options, and presentation materials in order to be able to experience the joys of art in ways that are meaningful to them.

Providing my students with a working environment that encourages creativity and supplies to create learning projects is important to bring their learning to life!

My Project

This project will allow my students an opportunity to create art projects that can help them develop hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, generate original ideas, follow steps in a sequence, work together with friends to develop social skills, reach art goals and objectives set by the state, and build a bridge between school and home-sharing Student creations.

Art sparks the imaginations of everyone who experiences it and helps bring opportunities to build social skills and positive conversations centered around students who need the opportunity to feel pride and success at their accomplishments.

A fully stocked mobile art station will provide a variety of supplies needed to meet the diverse, special needs to consider with our diverse students. Having the ability to store and move supplies between our classrooms so that low sensory environments are maintained and very small groups are possible is extremely important. Removing remove supplies quickly and safely Is also of great importance.

Having the ability to preserve the art creations of our students also provide s an opportunity for families to share in the enjoyment of their children’s experiences at school and build positive relationships. Art is a great way to share the excitement in our classroom with families and friends.
