Exploring Our Senses!

My students need art supplies, such as play dough materials and finger paints, to express themselves.

My Students

Do you remember the early years when you expressed your emotions through art? My students are just now learning to explore the world.

The children that attend the school I teach at are in a rural area in Kentucky.

The ages of the children are three, four, and five year olds. These children have not been fully introduced to the world due to their location. The school serves about 150 children. Most families are low income and need all the support that can be given.

My Project

The materials that I have asked for will allow children to grow into the person they want to be in the future. Art in preschool provides so many different benefits, but more importantly it allows children to express how they feel and learn how to be creative. Art provides children with the experience to learn fine motor skills, working with peers, and preparing them for kindergarten. These materials will give children the opportunity to grow into the individual they will be for the rest of their lives.

Any donations given will make all the difference on how these children develop.

Please help them grow and be able to have a fair chance to be successful and matter to the world. Preschool is the most important age to develop and learn who you will become.
