Our school is a dual language community school that serves ECE through sixth grade students. We provide a rigorous bilingual academic program that prepares all of our students for global citizenship in the 21st century. In the school, 97% of our student population participate in the free and reduced-price lunch program. The student body is 91% Latino/Hispanic, 4% Black, 3% White, and 2% Asian. My students love to learn and have the desire to learn at the beginning of their day. My students struggle with reading. They strive to grow as readers each and every day.
Title one schools often lag behind other school as they do not have the resources available to them. This will give my students a chance to use resources they have not before and produce quality art projects because of them.
The district requires each student to have a sketch book.
My students have never had this opportunity to have one as they are expensive and my budget will be used up if I were to purchase them for them. This is a disadvantage to them as they never have the opportunity to have all of their work in one area.
The drawing and watercolor supplies would be extremely wonderful as in the case of watercolor painting, we use construction paper, again because of lack of funds, this does not allow for all of the watercolor techniques to be taught because the paper will not allow for some of the techniques.
