My Students

My students are eager to learn and love art! They are very creative, and are ready the second they come in the door. I want to equip my students with all the things they need to be productive, like pencils, pencil sharpeners, kneaded erasers and art quality paper so they can create without having to stop and ask for things! They would benefit from having their own sharpeners, so they don’t have to ask to sharpen pencils and can create.

My Project

The main struggle my students have is trying to find a good, working pencil sharpener. They spend most of their time getting up and going to the one sharpener we have. I want to get each student a GOOD sharpener that will go in their bins so they don’t have to stop their art just to sharpen pencils! I have been gifted a room full of old supplies, and the main thing we are lacking are sharpeners for our students. We have to borrow from any teacher we can find, which causes disruptions in their class and mine. Thank you!
