Great kids need great opportunities to express themselves! I teach ART to over 100 7th grade students - a very diverse mix in a Title I school. Many of my creative and hard-working students have a low socioeconomic status and cannot afford art supplies. I want to provide them with plenty of supplies and tools to express themselves and so that they feel accomplished artistically!
In the time of COVID, we are not sharing class sets of art supplies.
Many of my students cannot afford the "extras" beyond basic pencil and paper. Please help my kids obtain their own private stash of glue, scissors, rulers, colored markers, paint, canvases, etc. They will keep their supplies in a gallon-size zip lock bag in their backpack, so that they (and I) will have peace of mind that only they are touching their supplies.
Your donation through DonorsChoose or gift cards issued by DonorsChoose are appreciated and will be used to the benefit of my students. Small donations add up and I will share pictures and thank you notes with you! Thanks for enabling us to stay safe in school.
My seventh grade students are incredible! They are artistic and creative! As a teacher, normally I would use class sets of materials for kids who could not afford to purchase their own supplies. I can't do this with COVID!
Please donate to my students who need help affording art supplies.
I will share these materials with individual students for their private use. Since we can't share class materials, they will keep their supplies in their backpack.
I will share pictures of their oustanding work, and even offer to make you a drawing or painting from me or my kids! Thank you for helping all my students do their best work while keeping us safe from spreading the virus.
