Mrs. Cardinali from Las Vegas NV is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Exploring the Arts

My students need canvas boards to paint like Jackson Pollack, yarn to create weaving projects, and display boards and card stock to make shadow puppets come to life!

My Students

I have the privilege of teaching the arts to the entire school body, which is over 800 students. The students I teach come from various ethnic backgrounds, and lower income families. I enjoy teaching them about the visual arts and how they can use it in their other academic areas. I love teaching my students how to be creative and how to express themselves through various art forms to highlight their strengths and give them ambition, drive, and the ability to believe in themselves.

My Project

The card stock and display boards I have selected will be used to create art forms of shadow puppetry, the yarn and craft sticks will be used for weaving, and the canvas boards and paper will be used to explore modern art with acrylics.

I'm going to teach my students about theater and various art forms through the use of different mediums that we have not experienced yet, like puppetry.

I can't wait to have my students make their own shadow puppets and make them come alive through storytelling and music! I also want to do a Jackson Pollock piece with the canvas boards which will be so exciting as well!
