Little Artists

Help me give my students the tools they need to create and express themselves through their art and their abilities. The easels will help student keep their art work neat and clean and provide a workable surface.

My Students

My students are all Athabaskan Natives, living in the small village of Tetlin which is about a hundred miles from the Canadian border. This is a low-income area and finding funding to start new and interesting activities can be difficult.

There is a whole new world out there that these students have not been provided with a vision of what they can see and experience.

They live in one of the most beautiful areas of the world, backed up to the Rangel-St. Elias National Park. Assisting these young men and women to better the quality of their education will be pivotal in directing the path that their lives take.

My Project

This project will allow my students to complete more art project in a clean and more workable environment. The easels will be a big help in that area. I would really like them to explore candle making in a variety of ways.

Art is a way for many of my students to express themselves and feel better about their abilities.

Art is something that more of my younger students feel that they can do well or at least enjoy their time doing it.

These tools that you provide make it so that they have an easier time expressing their abilities.
