Mrs. Walsh from Cambridge Springs PA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Hallway Art to Improve the Blah

My students need art materials to create Eric Carle inspired multi-media collages on canvas to hang in our hallways semi-permanently identifying grade levels and classrooms; improving our institutional walls with ART!

My Students

The students at our school come from rural small-town backgrounds. They are brilliant, capable little people with so much energy and positive outlooks; it is inspiring to work with them every day and watch them grow into more than even they believed they could.

The students crave the structure and opportunities that public education has always been known for and excelled at; many of our students do not like going on summer break.

The transition to being home can be daunting for some of them for various reasons, all of them challenges children in these times face more than we can fathom.

Many have difficult financial situations to the extent that even putting food on the table daily can be a hardship. We have a high amount of students who qualify for the free and reduced lunch program and it shows; as they sit down to two meals provided by the school every day and clean their plates ravenous with hunger.

My students deserve every opportunity to expand their knowledge; discover their world and become life-long learners. But, financially speaking, public education is being systematically attacked making it difficult to provide for even the average learner without strife.

My Project

The materials I am requesting will be used to create artwork that will hang semi-permanently in our hallways helping to improve the look of the blah institutional cement block walls colored a uniform blah yellow color. Each canvas will be an Eric Carle (The Hungry Caterpillar) inspired artwork to help identify where grade levels are housed within the school (think, "...go to the lightening bug in hallway A to find the first grade classrooms.").

The colorful, festive artwork will also enhance the culture of the school instilling pride in the students when they see what they have created becoming something useful and beautiful within our school.

Each student will create a textured painting to be used towards the final project and identify with how their simple piece of art was used towards a more complex final piece of art improving the look of our hallways for years to come.
