Do you remember a time when you were in school and created a masterpiece that made you beam with pride? I would like to provide this experience for my students as well! I teach Kindergarten in a rapidly growing city in Texas. Most of the students that are in my classroom are from very disadvantaged homes. They rarely get the opportunity to have the creative experiences that they desire. Due to various reasons, my school stopped having art class for the students to attend. Any type of art related activities have to be done in the classroom.

My students have shown an interest in creating masterpieces of their own. We have very few art supplies, other than tempera paint. I would like to be able to supply my students with a variety of materials that will allow them to create and explore in many different ways. We will be starting work stations soon and I would love to have an art station where the students can go and let their creative juices flow!

I have thought about the type of art supplies that would allow the students to have a unique art experience. I think that the students would really enjoy having the use of giant ink pads, tempera paint markers, glitter tempera paint, and art tape. I can just envision the masterpieces that they could create with these supplies! Now, we come to the problem of allowing the masterpieces to dry without getting torn or stuck to other artwork. Usually, my students have to put their work on the floor to dry and later on they end up having to step over it to get to other items that we need. I would like to solve this problem by getting a tabletop drying rack. We have plenty of tabletop space, so this would be an excellent tool for us to have in our classroom.

By helping us to fulfill this project, you will make it possible for my students to create beyond their wildest dreams! I feel that these items will be used to their full extent and will be greatly appreciated by myself and the students as well. Your assistance will also give my students the opportunity to have Kindergarten experiences that they will remember for a lifetime!
