Mrs. Alix from Orange Park FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

It’s All the Rage to Turn the Page!

Help me give my students an art room library. They love books that help them learn how to draw AND books from our favorite artists!

My Students

Our Title I school may be home to low-income students, but we are rich in character and perseverance! Our students are hard workers, kind-hearted, and strive to always be a better version of themselves than they were the day before! They come to class eager to learn and excited to try something new each day! I love how they take pride in their work and how they build each other up when one of them isn’t feeling particularly stellar at that moment...they are all winners!

My Project

Our PHENOMENAL art students crave more books! They thirst for knowledge! Many times students finish before their peers and want more to inspire their creativity. Students constantly request “How to Draw...” books. They want reference material to help them learn step-by-step how to draw everyday things from animals to cartoons to vehicles and more.

I currently use online read-along Eric Carle books in our lessons but we don’t always have internet access (honestly...getting to see the artwork up close and personal is an amazing experience).

These books would make an amazing start to having a real art classroom library of “art only” related reference material.
