Ms. B from Saint Paul MN is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Join the Color Conversation!

Help me give my students the supplies to stay clean-aprons, rags a gloves, stay washable, have individual spaces afforded by stand up table easels, make tempura look like acrylics with gel, and be responsible for a project.

My Students

My students are convivial, kind, children of poor immigrants with a knack for dance and performance. They are used to creating entertainment from their phones, if they own one. Drawing them toward Visual Art has been like introducing a new foreign culture. As they are expressive, it seems that color is very important and the chance to control color an important and focus enhancing skill.

Many have had trouble with poor decisions before they came to our school.

Gaining painting success would given them a boost along the sometimes perilous adolescent quest for competence and autonomy. Such student have enjoyed gaining self identity in paint before, see an example here.

My Project

Color is a global language, even interpretation of color meaning is cultural and individual. Students will interact to understand the intentions in the Art of others, practice positive social skills in constructive commentary and support.

I have chosen tempura as my students have slim clothing budgets and a broad definition of fun, tempura is more washable.

This paint can be made to function like watercolors, ink and acrylic with the help of water, acrylic paste and gel. Discarded chipboard and even corrugated can be utilized for ground with application of gesso. Sketch books give students the confidence to draw what they intend to paint.
