My Students

Our art supplies are already beginning to take a toll, and it is only November!

I am currently teaching twenty-six fourth grade students.

Our school is a science and art charter school, so art is super important to our students. The school primarily serves low-income families and English language learners. My students love learning and especially enjoy our cool art projects.

My Project

Lately during art I have noticed that a lot of the markers are starting to lose their potency. The colors are very light and little by little we have been needing to throw them away. I am literally watching my art supplies vanish before my eyes! I know that I am not able to replace all of these supplies on my own.

Having new supplies in the class for my students will make a huge difference in their art projects.

The colors will be more vibrant and we will be able to continue our projects throughout the year. Any assistance is truly appreciated.
