Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am teaching eight forty-five minute periods of Visual Arts a week to around eighty-seven 8th grade students who love art. This is exciting for both me and the students, but unfortunately, our supplies are very limited. Our school is located in East Harlem, NYC on the fifth floor of an old school building. While the visual arts have always been a part of our school, there is an extremely limited supply of materials. In order to give my students a well-rounded, true art experience, I need materials. I am formerly trained in art, and I just cannot imagine teaching art without having a variety of materials for the students to explore and use. The materials will be used in conjunction with learning about many different artists and styles of artwork. I am requesting a range of art materials so that my students can experiment with and learn about materials. I want them to be able to make neighborhood collages (in the style of Romare Bearden), pen drawings (in the style of Keith Harring), and much more. Please help me bring my students a great year in the Art room. Thank you.
