Mrs. MOFFAT from Elmhurst NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Students with Special Needs from a High Poverty Area

My students need art supplies. Canvas, brushes and paints are just some of the things you can donate to my students with special needs who love to paint.

My Students

I have a passion for teaching and love what I do! One of those neglected areas of fun is art. I love teaching and coming up with projects; once in a lifetime opportunities.

The best part of teaching is getting children excited about learning and seeing what great ideas they can also come up with.

Children with special needs really need that hands-on experience to help them participate in these step by step group activities. This year with your help, I plan on teaching children on all grade levels K-5 to paint on canvas with acrylic paints.

My Project

The Canvas, brushes and paints that I am requesting are art supplies that will allow our class to participate in numerous art projects and learning activities. Having students engage in hands-on learning is one way to ensure that they can take ownership of their own learning and enjoy it at the same time! My students will be able to respond to literature, learn about various artists and their works, create arts and crafts projects, and express their creativity.

An art show without real paintings???

It would be very rewarding for myself and my students along with their parents to see their works of art on display during our Art Show during parent teacher conference day. The memories of accomplishment will continue as they get to go home with a finished piece of artwork; a painting to display at home for many years to come.
