My Students

My classroom is full of diverse and talented kids. They love to learn and dive into their creativity. My students are bright and energetic, always eager to grow as imaginative individuals. However, they attend a Title One school where their socio-economic setback is causing them to be stunted in their educational growth as well as their opportunities. Despite this, I believe if they get the right push, they can reach their full potential.

My Project

Our goal for this project is to give our students art supplies and build our first-year art program. Art programs foster creativity and developmental skills that students will be able to utilize in their personal and professional lives. However, that’s not possible when underfunded schools have to cut art departments and their resources to save money.

It is important that every student has equal opportunities and experiences regardless of circumstance.

Art programs offer a lot more than coloring on a page; that’s why we need your help to support our kids by donating toward these painting supplies to support child development, creativity, and educational equality. Your kindness supports our cause.
