Ms. Herrero from Oakland CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

High-Need H.S. Art Classes Need Supplies!

My students need a variety of cans of spray paint.

  • $555 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach Art One, Advanced Art, and Fashion Design at a small alternative public high school with a high-need population of grades 9-12 in California.

Our school is under-funded, especially when it comes to the arts. This year specifically, there were many budget cuts in the area. We do have an initiative to become an arts-focused school, but there are many obstacles to overcome, especially financially. The majority of our population is from a low socioeconomic background with many cultural obstacles as well. Nonetheless, our students are blessed with an amazing passion, drive, and dedication to artistic creativity and personal success. The more they are given the resources and opportunities for positive and engaging programs, the more positive success they will have in their futures.

We need art supplies for our art program. If we can receive any part of this art supply proposal, our students will be able to do more technically and intellectually advanced and stimulating art projects, specifically with spray paint which is a huge interest among our population. Since illegal graffiti is an issue today, teaching students legal and artistic ways of using this art material helps them learn how to express themselves in a positive and powerful way.

Your help will make a huge difference in empowering our future leaders. The students will be extremely grateful that there are people out there who care and are willing to give where it's needed the most!
