My students need drawing and painting supplies for their art time. We need watercolor paper, drawing pads, pastels, drawing pencils and paint brushes that are decent.
Have you ever tried to paint or draw with supplies that were not designed for the project at hand? That is what we are trying to do. Our class enjoys art time and often our quality of supplies becomes disastrous. Hard work has turned into a major mess.
Our students are special needs students from age 14-21.
These students have significant needs and art is a way that they are able to express themselves without words. Our school is a small rural alternative school in Idaho. We are in an economically depressed area where funds are hard to come by. DonorsChoose has been a very big blessing to our program. Without help from caring individuals we would not be able to offer art activities to our students.
My students need drawing and painting supplies for their art time. We need watercolor paper, drawing pads, pastels, drawing pencils and paint brushes that are decent. Since beginning our art activities our students have grown in their knowledge of the different mediums and learned a great deal about art history. Having access to art is vital for the students' self-esteem. It allows them to express themselves through their art when sometimes they have no other way to do so. It allow them to show emotions and feeling through these hands-on activities. They are able to participate in activities that help to brighten the environment in which they learn. It provides open ended activities that they are able to complete with more independence than in a traditional activity within the class. They will learn to use color, show textures and shading techniques with paints, pastels, and drawing pencils.
"Where words fail, the language of visual art can be heard more clearly and distinctly.
A powerful and effective form of communication, art has increasingly become a therapeutic method for enhancing health and well-being, ..." ~ Cathy Malchiodi ~ Your support of this project will enable our students to use visual arts to express themselves in a form of communication that can be therapeutic and delightful. Their art will brighten the school and bring pleasure to many who pass through.Read More
