Mrs. Turchi from Philadelphia PA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Paint & Create!

Help me give my students an Indoor/Outdoor Painting Center to create an area to paint, draw, and be artistic. The fabulous four sided painting center will be a great addition to my art center where my students can gather and create.

My Students

My students from Philadelphia are part of a pilot program that connects Head Start and Bright Futures children. This early learning program gives children from all cultures, areas, and various incomes an opportunity to learn and thrive within the district.

My little learners enjoy playing, writing, reading, discovering, sharing ideas, and exploring in center time, circle time, and during meal times, within our classroom.

They are encouraged to explore and investigate as they touch, listen, look, speak, smell, and grow throughout the day.

My spectacular children enjoy listening to rich literature, talking and sharing ideas with peers, and playing with friends throughout the classroom and learning about the world around us. As they gain confidence, learn, and gather knowledge throughout the day, I am confident that they will be successful in the future.

My Project

I am requesting a fabulous Indoor/Outdoor Painting Center for 4. I believe this space saving four-sided easel will be an area where students can gather, share ideas, and paint while learning about various thematic units of study. I'm also hopeful that this easel will provide an area for several students to create original artwork for our classroom.

I am anxious to be able to connect our thematic units with artistic creativity.

I would like to invite students to the multisided easel to paint multicolored leaves on extending branches while working on our tree thematic unit. They could create towering gray skyscrapers for our building unit. And, I can imagine children demonstrating an understanding of various clothing while painting colorful mittens, hats, scarves during our clothing unit.
