I Didn't Know There Were So Many Colors!

My students need fresh art supplies to start the year off- markers, crayons, colored pencils, oil pastels, and chalk pastels!

My Students

My students laugh at me for describing markers as "juicy," but there is nothing worse than a dry marker that is just ruining all of your hard work because it colors poorly! I love bright and vibrant colors, not washed out and dry looking! Please help us get some juicy markers to replace our dry ones!

My kiddos are 850 of the most amazing people I know.

They are smart, interesting, charismatic, delightful, and loving little people. I love my job and spending time with them every day. These kiddos have such a love for art...now we just need to get some better supplies to help inspire them and their creativity!

My Project

We are requesting basic art materials- in lots and lots of colors! We are in need of both broad and fine markers, colored pencils, oil pastels, chalk pastels, and crayons. I teach 8 classes a day, 5 days a week, and the kids use these supplies the whole day long! These classpacks are awesome because they have everything you need!

This project proposal is so important because we are just scraping by lately with almost dry, non-working markers and chubby little stubs of everything else.

I want some juice in my marker and some length to my pencil! It has been too long since I got teased by my students for describing our markers as juicy...a sad sign for sure! Please help us add some juicy markers back to our table caddies!
