Mrs. Dugard from Winnsboro LA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Painting My Louisiana

My students need printer ink to print their own photography as a reference for their art. Large watercolor paper will the best surface for their upcoming project and charcoal pencils are needed as a final step.

My Students

My students push themselves to their creative limits. The classroom mission is to be introduced to wonderful art, be inspired to create beautiful pieces, and build a greater appreciation for art and the importance of creative thinking. Art is becoming increasingly important in schools. In a school day filled with "this answer is right, this answer is wrong," it is important to have a class where students can come up with their own creative solutions and problem solve at their pace.

I have some truly gifted and talented students.

I teach in a Title I school where 100 percent of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. I constantly pull money from my own pocket to provide the materials needed for many of my lessons. These students lack the basic tools needed to explore the creative world around them.

My Project

Students collect memories, stories, and iPhones packed with pictures of the place they call home: Louisiana. 'Painting My Louisiana' will give my students a creative outlet for these precious things. With the ink, students will finally be able to print their photographs. This allows them a color reference to work from, something they have not had a chance to do before. Color will play the most important role in the majority of student work.

If you're going to do it, do it big.

This is why the watercolor paper will really send this project over the top. Scale will be a big factor in the Louisiana piece. Charcoal is going to be the finishing touch as students are learning about emphasis and contrast. After their hard work, making sure their art stands out is one of the top priorities.
