Mrs. Shelby from Greenbrier AR is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Painting Like Pros!

My students need watercolor paint, brushes, and paper as well as better paint and drawing supplies to explore and create quality art.

My Students

My students are a close knit group of thinkers and dreamers, eager to be exposed to a wide variety of hands-on art. We are in a wonderfully supportive community and school, and our students continue to inspire me to be a better teacher.

I love to see their proud faces when they feel they have created a masterpiece!

My students love to explore new mediums and I want to continue to grow our art department with new tools for them to master.

My Project

We have tempera paint but it tends to crack once it dries and it's always disappointing to my students. I would love the opportunity for them to experience better quality paint and supplies. They would be so excited to try some metallics as well! Anything that sparkles brings a sparkle to their eyes.

My students love to paint!

They ask to use watercolors but we don't have enough for everyone to paint at the same time. It would be great to introduce them to a project using quality watercolors and actual watercolor paper. I can't wait to see what they create! New paints, brushes, paper, and some drawing supplies will bring a whole bunch of smiles to my classroom!
