Let's Learn About Cultural Diversity Through Art!

My students need one box of markers, one box of crayons and one box of color pencils in order to draw self portraits.

My Students

Do you remembering drawing a self portrait? I want my students to embrace their differences and similarities using a variety of art materials.

I teach 22 first graders in a Title 1 School located in a high poverty and high crime area in Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and free lunch. My students come from a variety of backgrounds. Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken.

My Project

I would like my students to create a self portrait for our classroom bulletin board based on the book "We are all the same, We are all different". In order to create our self portraits, we need a variety of art supplies such as markers, crayons and colored pencils.

Please help us get the materials for our multi-cultural bulletin board.

I want my students to be proud of their culture. I want them to express their cultural identity through art. Please help us make their project a reality.
