My Students

Our school is made up of some of the greatest kids around. We are a Pre-k to 5th grade public school. Our students come from all over the world and always bring beautiful new ideas to our art classes each day. Our students are creative kids who are eager to explore through the arts. They love to try out all kinds of art supplies, learn about new artists and get messy while having fun .

I teach in North Carolina at a school with a very diverse population of children.

We have over 500 kids that bring many different skills, styles and ideas to class. They would love some fresh new supplies to use in our art classroom.

My Project

Letting our children explore art in various forms allows for more creative exploration. When our students have different materials to use in their class it allows them more opportunities to take risks.

These materials also help build their fine motor skills, problem solving skills, social skills, communication abilities and more.

These materials also lend their hand to later learning opportunities and skills such as reading, writing and mathematics.

I firmly believe that giving children the ability to express themselves in a safe way also teaches them about themselves.

Thank you all for your support and helping fund this project for our school.
