My Students

We are a Title I school in a major city and a lot of our students come from difficult home lives. It's a high poverty area, and this year our school budget has been cut severely. We need your help!

We are one of the few schools in the area that has a strong art program, and I am so grateful for it.

Over the past five years that I have been here, I have seen more and more students turn to art as a form of expression. These students love art, and I think it's important to keep that love growing.

My Project

It's the middle of the school year which means we have already gone through all of our cleaning supplies!

We use a lot of different and messy materials in Art and are in desperate need of more wipes and paper towels.

I am also asking for some origami books and paper. Whenever I have a student finish a project early I let them free draw or do some origami. I had no idea they would all love the origami books so much! I only have two and they usually end up fighting over them, that is why I'm asking for your help!
