Ms. Aringe from Maxton NC is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Time Paint Users! Help Needed!

My students need watercolor paints, watercolor paper, oil pastels, plastic compasses, and the art tote board to mix colors and experience the color wheel by mixing and blending colors using these materials.

My Students

My students are amazingly creative, young people within a rural low-income community. I teach 10-13 year olds who have had little to no previous art experience. Most of the students at my school come from low-income homes and just simply do not have the money to donate supplies to the Art room. Within my class my students strive to learn new things in art and become excited for each new lesson. My students from a tiny community in North Carolina, take pride in all that they do and are eager this year to compete in art shows for the very first time.

Before I came to this school, my students had not had an Art teacher for over a year.

They were so excited to see that someone cared enough to be there for them. I hope that you can be there for them too.

My Project

Many of my students have never had the opportunity to use certain art materials such as paint or oil pastels. These paints would give my students the opportunity to experience painting and develop as young artists. Throughout our curriculum, we learn about the Elements of Art and Principles of Design which are critical in a young artist's learning.

I focus on ways to relate these processes to the student to aid in their understanding and the only way that I understood the color wheel when I was young was making it myself.

With that said, these painting materials will be used by my students to understand the concept of mixing and blending colors for the elements of color, value, and shape. This is critical in their developing knowledge of Art as it helps to lead to understanding many of the other artists we are learning about throughout the year.
