Funding for New Elementary School Art Program

My students need air-dry clay, acrylic and watercolor paints, and paper to launch our new art program!

My Students

Can you imagine going through elementary school without ever picking up a paintbrush or without ever being exposed to any of the other beautiful methods of art, the history of art, and great artists?

I am a new Elementary Art teacher in the public school system, and I will start teaching art to Kindergarten through grade 6 this fall.

Our school is in a low income, urban area, and this is the first time the students have ever had an art program because of lack of funding.

Most of our students come from families at or below the poverty level and receive free lunch benefits - many cannot even afford basic school supplies - so we have little in the way of family contributions or encouragement/exposure to art in the home environments our students come from.

My Project

We are starting a new art program for children in grades K - 6 completely from scratch. All students will be participating in art every day, and they are so eager to create!

My vision is to have a beautiful, well-equipped art space where students' creativity is nourished every day, filling our school with student art, and creating a sense of pride and an appreciation for art in general.

With your donations, students will have the opportunity to paint, make sculptures, and nourish their creativity every day. With the watercolors, acrylics, paper, and clay donated, students will have the opportunity to create beautiful paintings and sculptures and learn about many different artists and techniques. I want to line the halls with student artwork, create legacy murals, and let students, families, and everyone else who enters know our school values creative expression.

Thank you so much for your generosity!
