Got Clay?

My students need clay, glaze, sponges, and an extruder for ceramic art. The students need these basic supplies of art in order to reach their highest potential.

My Students

As an art teacher, I desire my students to achieve their highest artistic potential. However, teaching at a public art school, we are not funded for art supplies and other basic necessities. It is difficult for the students to work in an widening environment when the classroom lacks the materials.

Since our school is a public visual and performing arts school, my students come from a diverse range of socioeconomic backgrounds determined to become successful artists in the future.

Despite many of my students coming from a low-income background, they excel and advance in their artistic talent; in addition, they have the motivation to derive their skills for the community and for their futures. Being a teacher, I am proud of leading and mentoring these bright students, helping them lead their futures to artistic success.

My Project

My students only need the basic ceramic supplies to train the quality of their skills. Having the fundamental necessities (clay, glazes, sponges, extruder) the students can perform future communital work and projects and drastically improving their art, as they did in the previous years. We want to hold ceramic expositions for charities and the community. In addition, this will open beginner students into the world of art while exposing advanced students into the bigger world of art. The students will have supplies to widen their future artistic careers and obtain virtuoso accomplishments.

My students have a great desire to achieve high artistic techniques, and I hope for them to too.

As I teacher, I want to give my students the necessities for them to build a broad future and a successful career. Most of my students come from a low-income family, having a limit in obtaining basic supplies; I see light in their future because of their motivation and determination to excel in art, despite their backgrounds. Their talent and mindset inspires me, so I hope to inspire them as well.
