My Project

My students love taking part in arts and carts during the school year as they are looking for ways to express themselves creatively. The art supplies will provide the young creators the opportunity to enter a space where they feel safe to create and engage with one another. The supplies will help us to have the opportunity to work together and collaborate while creating masterpieces they can bring home and feel proud of.

Our students enjoy arts and crafts because it's a space where they feel safe and can express their creativity with one another.

Having the supplies will benefit our students as they can create a variety of crafts they can use as a keepsake, a gift, or to beautify our classroom. This will also bring our students closer as they build a bond with each other. The students will be able to cope with their daily struggles in a creative constructive way.
