Mr. Kirkman from Colusa CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

On-Site Metal Car Tree Sculpture with Block and Ceramic Base

My students need art supplies to create several outside art works on our campus. These materials will be used by AP students in 3D design.

  • $1,325 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Art is a state of mind. My students are the creative minds of the future with the right materials and exposure. I had a district budget of $250 for the entire 2013-14 school year. We are a small rural school with 63% of the students on free or reduced lunches.

My students are highly motivated and come from diverse backgrounds.

Some students will be the first generation to attend a college in their families. Our county has one of the highest unemployment rates in the state.

My Project

Bottom line we need the supplies badly to give the students at least a fair shot at working and studying the fine arts. They will take the skills learned and hopefully apply them to real world jobs. The projects planned will give them that opportunity to enter that world with skills needed to succeed.

Without your support students will miss a great opportunity to explore the creative arts.

This funding will create an outlet for them during the day where they can be inspired by the art world around them.
