My Students

Great kids need great opportunities to express themselves! I teach ART to 200 7th grade students - a very diverse mix in a Title I school. Many students with low socioeconomic status have lots of personal issues that make learning harder for them. I want to provide them with plenty of supplies and tools to express themselves and feel accomplished artistically!

I have more ideas than art supplies.

Your donation through DonorsChoose or gift cards issued by DonorsChoose are appreciated and will be used to the benefit of my students.

My Project

We have the paint but not enough brushes for 200 students. Please help provide brushes that are needed so that each student has their own brush to create art work.

These brushes will be used for tempera and watercolor art creations by 7th grade students.

Last year, I bought the paint and we have enough to use this coming school year. We simply do not have enough brushes for over 200 kids.

They LOVE to paint and your donation would enable my students to express themselves in many different projects through the year.
