My Students

My amazing students come from a low socio-economic status home life but a high-energy and motivated school life! Many of my students want to be involved in extra-curricular activities and clubs, but don't have the means to do so. In our school's surrounding neighborhood, poverty is dominant and severely limits the exposure children have to anything outside their basic home and school lives.

Children need exposure to the arts to cultivate and promote creativity, problem solving skills, emotional expression and even fine motor skills!

My students don't often have the opportunity to take art classes outside of the school setting. While they enjoy art class pullout, it's still for a grade and it's still very much guided. My students crave more in-depth and individual art projects in which they can immerse themselves and grow their natural abilities.

My Project

To support my students learning painting skills that they would most likely never have the opportunity to learn otherwise (not while they are young, at least), I have started several painting clubs that meet once a week that I fully support with my own money. I have a painting club with ten, fourth graders a month, then a painting club with 6 fourth graders who make paintings for residents of a local nursing home, and then a club with six, fifth and sixth graders. I am up to buying twenty-two canvases a month, along with new paint. My students and I would really appreciate the support to help our clubs keep going!
