Help Bring A World Of Art Into Our Classroom

The cost of various art supplies including colored paper, sun catchers, and foam fun shapes purchased from ABC School Supply, Inc. is $249, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am currently a third grade teacher in a title one school. The students in my class are very creative and become extremely motivated whenever an art lesson is in sight. My school does not have an art program so the only way students are exposed to art is through the classroom teacher. I am asking for your help to provide these children with the necessary resources which will allow them to engage their creativity. School is not just about academics and students need to be able to express themselves in various ways. Art allows students to have an outlet during their demanding academic schedule. Often students are more motivated to learn when they have a chance to be creative as well. It gives them an incentive to complete their other tasks. Please help me bring art back into the classroom. These art supplies will allow me to teach lessons that are connected to the social studies curriculum, which happens to be Africa for the 2006/2007 school year. The students will be able to make African Masks and other various African crafts.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
