Give Us More Art Please!

My students need art supplies like paint, paper, markers, clothes line, clothes pins, art frames, paint cups, and brushes!

My Students

Do you remember creating the perfect masterpiece? I have always enjoyed art. Looking at other peoples' art and creating my own have always made me smile. I remember in school creating art and not being able to wait to show it off at home. I want my students to do the same!

My students are wonderful first graders who love to learn.

The school my students attend is located in North Carolina. We are a high poverty school with very little extra resources. We are not a Title One school even though we are high poverty. We receive less funding than a Title One school, but need the same amount of help.

My Project

Who doesn't love art? I always grew up loving art so much. I remember making art in school and not being able to wait to take it home and show my family. I want my students to have the same experience. My students do get art class, but only three times per month. I want my students to experience art more. I have requested art supplies like paint, paper, markers, art frames, paint cups, brushes and more. I would love to use these art supplies and integrate art with our writing time. I want my students to be able to create wonderful pictures to go with their stories. I want my students to be able to expand their imagination and create art they are proud of. I want my students to be able to look back at their masterpieces years from now and say, "Wow, look what I created."

Giving to this project would help 21 wonderful first graders be able to use their imaginations and create wonderful masterpieces.

Funding this project will help put a smile on my students' faces and allow them to be the creative individuals they are by expanding their imagination through art! Please help provide my students with hands-on engagement during learning!
