My Students

Art is such an important vehicle to help convey ideas to young children. Creating theme-related group or individual projects helps build a cooperative community in our classroom, and enhances students' understanding of the world around them.

My first graders, like most children, love to create using crayons, markers, paint, clay, or any other materials we have available.

Because most of my students do not have money for art supplies, I try to provide as many different types of materials as I can for them to use in the classroom. Like most school districts in the country, money for art supplies in elementary classrooms is non-existent. I would love to be able to welcome my students back to school in August with enough art supplies for them to create special projects each month.

My Project

My six year olds' eyes will pop when they see new paint brushes, paints, modeling clay, tissue paper, paper mache mix, pipe cleaners, wiggle eyes, yarn, artist's aprons, and a double-sided tabletop easel! And puzzle pieces they can draw on--they won't believe it! I can already see the amazing puppets, murals, and clay animals they will make! And paper mache globes--what better way to "see" the world.

My students have such pride when they display their work for others to see.

What a confidence booster it is for them to be able to tell others what they have learned and how this project represents their new knowledge and understanding. I want to thank you, on behalf of my children, for choosing this project for your donation.
