Mrs. Troy Kubly from Laguna Niguel CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Oil Pastels for Science Journals and STEAM Projects

My students need oil pastels for the completion of STEAM projects. Each scholar would have a beautiful new box of pastels for completing their amazing art, science or math projects.

My Students

My students are amazing scholars that try their best to learn each and every day. The are a diverse group with about 1/3 of them that are second language learners. Together they speak over 7 different languages!

Due to the location of my public school, we are not a Title 1 Funded school and thus do not receive additional funds however my students are mighty, have extreme grit, and make the most of every learning opportunity given them!

We are on a journey to add more STEAM activities to our learning. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. Many of our projects come from recycled materials. One item that we just can't afford in our supply budget but love working with are art oil pastels. I have a collection of old boxes with bits and pieces but I dream of a time when I can give each student a beautiful new box to use with an assortment of beautiful colors. They love using pastels to draw and label a variety of science and math activities. This year those included world biomes, canopy layers of the tropical rainforest, solar system, fraction animal creations and performance tasks on animal adaptations!

My Project

My scholars would love to have new pastels to complete sketches, labeling and drawings in their science journals. In addition, they can use this wonderful art medium to create projects in all subjects.

Science and art go hand in hand in our classroom as we develop our understanding of new ideas through labeling and drawing.

Scholars are comfortable exploring their subject through the use of technology but really bring it to full understanding when they have an opportunity to draw it! Crayons are good. Colored pencils are ok. But Oil Pastels are special and we can't afford them without your generous support! Please consider helping us with this worthy project. We will send you some of the best drawings you have ever seen as our thank you!
