My Students

My students are a part of a Title-1, inner-city school located in a low socioeconomic neighborhood in a large urban area of California. Our school provides free breakfast and lunch for all students.

Every child is an artist waiting to make their mark!

Parents, students, and staff all work together to build excitement and a true sense, that education is important. I cannot wait to welcome my kindergartens into our classroom and see their little faces when they see the many art projects that we will create with our different paints.

My Project

Kindergarteners are just waiting to use their little hands to create incredible pieces of art on a daily basis, which is why I want to provide them with various art materials that will last them the entire school year. Unfortunately, our school has limited materials and that is why I am asking for your donations. I want my students to develop the love for arts, as I do.

"A child's life is like a piece of paper on which every person leaves a mark" - Chinese Proverb

I have always wanted to use watercolors, paint sticks, and paint dots with my students, but I haven't had the resources to do so. These various art materials are different ways for my students to practice writing their names, creating letter projects, mixing primary colors to make secondary colors, and going over the various elements of art. This is a great opportunity for them to develop the love of arts!
