Mrs. Michelle Weintraub from S Richmond Hill NY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need art supplies to create Paul Klee inspired works.
My students in grades k-2 are a diverse and energetic mix of kids from various ethnic groups. Our school community is located in a low socioeconomic area of south Richmond Hill, NY. There aren’t any places for kids to experience art. Many of our students are ENL, special needs or new immigrants. The families of these students lack the means to take advantage of the art culture in NYC. Many of the parents work more than one job and/or speak English. This makes it hard for them to take their children to museums, book signings or meet/greets for authors or artists to build question and discussion in for culture and experiences that will last a lifetime.
The students will be inspired to use their prior knowledge of abstract art and apply it to expressionism art. They will learn about Paul Klee and how he was inspired by Wassily Kandinsky which was our last artist study. They will utilize dot art to form lines and images to be of unique organic quality to create a community mural with the dot art requested, felt, different types of paper that we need and fabric to create different textures and use collage techniques. I want them to learn to see art and all of its beauty. I also want them to build a sense of color by creating abstract animals, faces and buildings using oil pastels like Paul Klee and colors cool and warm. I want to integrate art, music and writing to enhance our mantra at p.s. 55q. And support our new magnet school title. Magnet school of communications through art, multimedia and technology.
