Move Over, Pablo Picasso

My students need 40 sketch book diaries.

My Students

Move over, Picasso! My students are sharpening their pencils and getting ready to draw up a storm.

My fourth graders live in a working class and immigrant neighborhood.

Most of them are learning English as a second language, some have special needs, and all of them love to learn. Our Title I school is an important safe haven for my kids who are surrounded by poverty and gang activity.

My Project

All artists need to practice their craft. In our classroom, we spend a lot of time learning visual arts. Many of my students get frustrated, though, because they don't get enough time to practice what they have learned. I would like them to have their own sketch book diaries so they can practice drawing frequently and with the safety of no pressure. With these sketch books, my students will be able to practice drawing figures in proportion, use shading to make three dimensional figures, and create collages using colorful papers. We are asking for a class set of sketch book diaries.

With your generous donation of 40 sketch books to my class, my students will learn what it is like to develop an artistic craft.

Whether they aspire to create works of art like Matisse, Kahlo, or Picasso, they will have a chance to improve and explore with their imagination. My students and I thank you!
