My Students

I teach in a Title I school that is under-served and low-income. Through the years, I have learned about the hardships that these children overcome everyday, and I strive to provide a high quality education so that they can grow up to be their best possible selves.

My students need art supplies that they can use to express themselves and create artwork.

Because these students have limited access to art supplies and opportunities to express themselves through visual representations, they are limited in their ability to have a voice. If I can provide my students with a class set of Mr. Sketch Markers, we can help these students to learn how freeing it can be to express oneself through art.

My Project

These three class packs of Mr. Sketch Markers will provide my students with the supplies to create colorful artwork that they can use to express themselves and give visual significance to their projects. Mr. Sketch Markers are high quality art supplies that are long-lasting, vibrant, and fun-scented!

My students deserve to have supplies that can help them be mindful when they create their artwork.

Having class-sets of Mr. Sketch Markers will allow the students to use a variety of color in their artwork when creating class projects. It is important for my students to express themselves through visual art. Please help bring Mr. Sketch Markers to my students.
