From Locker Room to Art Room

My students need area rugs to cover the old cement floors of our art room (which used to be a locker room!). This will provide them a soft place to read and learn.

My Students

My students are in an urban district with over 95% of students living in high poverty.

They also come from all over the world, a lot of them being immigrants and refugees.

Somalia, Mexico, DR Congo, Vietnam, Bhutan, Nepal, Puerto Rico, Honduras, Thailand, Dominican Republic, Cuba,...and many more!! What a great community to be part of a diverse learning community.

School funding has been cut, and we have been doing our best, but the children at our school need your help. I see over 550 amazingly talented students, who just need the tools to succeed!

My Project

Right now, our art room has old cement floors with drains, and white concrete walls because it used to be a locker room for the gym. We have tried our best to make it more like an art room, but we need your help! We are trying to make it a welcoming learning space by providing soft spaces to read, draw independently, and add color to dull spaces.

Our students LOVE art, and we would like to give them a comfortable, colorful learning space that inspires them by adding area rugs!

With your help, we can make that happen. Thank you for thinking of our kids!
