Ms. L. from Washington DC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Molding Young Artists With 3-D Sculpting Supplies!

My students need 7 tubs of modeling clay, 9 blocks of colorful accent molding clay pieces, and 15 sets of plastic modeling tools to use with the clay for 3-D sculpting.

My Students

I am seeking to "mold" and "shape" young artists by teaching them 3-D modeling clay sculpting techniques!

I teach an enrichment art class for 5th and 6th graders at a high-performing charter school in a high-needs community.

The class focuses on developing basic art and creativity skill that are often not taught in the area. My students, although highly creative and curious about the world, often lack opportunities to express themselves in various media because of the lack of funding available in the budget for the arts. We currently do not have 3-D sculpting materials to use in art class. My students have already expressed an interest in working beyond marker and color pencil mediums.

My Project

I need various colors and textures of modeling clay and plastic clay tool sets in order to empower my students to bring their imaginations to life in 3-D form. The supplies will be enough to sustain the creative art works of many 5th and 6th graders throughout the year.

Your help will ensure that my students have the opportunity to engage in creative artistic expressions that wealthier students in neighboring counties are able to enjoy.

Your donation, no matter how small, will contribute to a wealth of artistic ventures for our class.
