New Art Program Needs Your Help

My students need a place to organize their work. I am requesting 25 bins - for the 25 classes I'll be teaching. These bins will help organize the students masterpieces.

My Students

Do you remember being excited about your art work or just being able to show your creativity some how? These children need a place to store their art work. I'm a new art teacher going into an old art room where the position was cut for a while. I need to create an inviting room for kids.

My students range from grade Pre K- 5.

We are located in the Bronx. High Poverty - but they appreciate so much - I enjoy working with them and being able to bring out the natural artistic abilities. Some children may not always do well academically, but are able to show their work through art. The children are eager and ready to begin working with all different kind of art supplies. Sometimes they don't always have these supplies at home and look forward to coming to school so they can be able to experiment using art to demonstrate their creative abilities. Your help would be appreciated. These items will store the students' unfinished art work so that they can continue working on their masterpieces the following week. Art is given once a week in our school and these storage bins will keep work organized and clean for each of the class that comes to art. This is a great addition to this art room that has been outdated and the students will benefit from it tremendously.

My Project

Do you remember wanting to go to art class? It was an exciting feeling! Students need to discover their talents and creative ability. Kids need art and our school just opened an art position. I need your help to make our students develop or discover their artistic abilities. When kids don't always succeed academically, art is away for them to illustrate what they are feeling and thinking. Help make a difference in the lives of these children. The students enjoy coming to art class where they don' t feel pressured to know the right answer - its a place for them to escape stress and enjoy being creative. I am working very hard to help create an art room that inspires children to think creatively. It's a room that I am designing to help children feel welcomed and appreciated in their thoughts and work. These supplies will help organize the art room and will be a keepsake for the students art work. Thank you for your continued support.

Some children may not succeed academically, art is that area they look to for confidence.

When they discover their artistic abilities their self-esteem has changed. Art is important for children to have in every school. Its a place where they can discover a creative, fun talent they didn't know they had. It's important for children to discover their artistic abilities and be creative. I am please my school has opened the art position this year. Your donation will help me get started.
