I am so lucky that I get to teach EVERY student in the school because I have the BEST job in the world as an art director. I get to teach them and watch them grow year after year. All of the kids at our school are special. We are a school with students of various backgrounds and experiences and what they bring to our school artistically is truly magical. As an art teacher, I get to see students shine in different ways than they might in the general classroom and that is what is so special about this art program.
I am in desperate need of a drying rack for my classroom. I teach over 400 students and my students love to paint using various mediums, but they don't get to because I am running out of places to put their art when it is wet. I can teach on upwards of 100 students a day and if they all created "wet" art that would mean I'd need to find places in my room for all of it. This will allow multiple classes to create my paintings and overall give all the students at my school access to more ART, which is what schools need greatly!
