Hooray! This project is fully funded

In our studio at Clark Street Elementary in Henderson, NC, all of my students are working hard to become full-fledged Art Stars! This is the first year my school has space for an art classroom (the previous fine arts teacher was mobile) and I want to build a structured, welcoming studio environment where students can reach their highest academic and artistic potential. In addition to practical instruction, I am implementing an art history program where students can research and present their knowledge of major artists and movements to the class on a weekly basis. My goal is to create an art library full of age-appropriate books that will help students develop their artistic technique and learn about art throughout history. I already have the necessary space planned out including bookshelves, motivational posters and comfortable areas to sit and do research. All I need are engaging art books that pre-K through fifth grade students can use for their projects. The school budget does not allow for funding in this area, but I am certain that with help from donors, we can create a library that will be an essential component of a comprehensive and permanent fine arts program at the school. I believe that a fine arts program is a necessary part of any curriculum; it teaches creativity, organizational and critical thinking skills and can be especially beneficial to students who lack confidence in more traditional academic subjects. Please help the bright, motivated students of Clark Street Elementary become serious historians and dedicated Art Stars!
