Ms. Geyer from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fund Oklahoma Art Rooms!

My students need supplies, wood spools, soapstone, a marbling class pack, and tooling foil, to be successful in their art class and explore new mediums they would otherwise be unable to use.

My Students

In Oklahoma, it's no secret that funding for the arts has been drastically reduced. Many students have had little or no experience with visual arts due to programs being removed from public schools- many don't know what colors can be mixed to form secondary colors, or what a complimentary color is, or understand the basics of how art and culture are so important to each other.

The population of my school is 80% minority, and over 86% are on a free or reduced lunch; students coming from these demographics need a safe place for personal expression now more than ever.

My students are brilliant, giving, and enthusiastic learners that are eager to get their hands into clay, or try their hand at creating a personal masterpiece in the style of Vincent van Gogh. Their self-confidence grows with the completion of every project, and I have had the privilege of watching their personalities brighten and joy come over their faces with every step they take in their artistic education.

My Project

It's no secret that art classes across the United States are underfunded, but Oklahoma is eliminating most or all of the funding granted to art classes in public schools. The supplies on my list will help me to reach out to ignite the creative spirit of my students, and allow them to truly experience what it would be like to be a sculptor, painter, or multi-media artist.

These supplies will help my students to explore new mediums and experience an art class beyond the world of crayons and paper.

With these materials, my students can explore Japanese traditional water marbling, stone carving, sculpture making, and more.
