My Students

I teach art at a small, rural school full of extremely creative students. My students come from a variety of backgrounds and have a wide range of personalities. They love to have fun, make art and learn new things!

My students are very inquisitive and they are always looking for something new to try.

In the hands of my students, anything can become art! They love to find new uses for materials and to learn new skills that they didn't already know.

My Project

My students all really enjoy using markers on their art projects. We have one class set of markers that we use for all art classes Kindergarten through 12th grade. That set of markers is running very low on ink and we could use some replenishments to get us through the rest of the school year. A new set of broad tip markers and fine tip markers would really make my students' day!

My art students also love to paint and our paint brush supply is in need of help!

Our current paint brush supply is very old. My students would love to have a larger variety of paint brushes in lots of different shapes and sizes to help them create their projects! Having a larger variety of brushes would allow my students to experiment even further with their painting techniques.
