My Students

My students come from all walks of life. My job is to inspire my students and teach them through the medium of art.

The most important part of my job is my students.

They are children who often have difficult home environments. School should be a safe haven and I work hard to make my classroom a safe and inviting atmosphere where students can be themselves and explore what is important to them through their art. Art opens the doors for children to explore what is truly important to them.

My Project

The paint brushes I am requesting will allow my students to create paintings with the tools they deserve. If this project is funded, each student in my Painting One and Painting Two classes will get a paintbrush set that they will be responsible for. Students will use these brushes for almost every assignment in each class throughout the year. Art is a class where students get to express their ideas through their own creativity; paint brushes are the tools my students need to express themselves. There are differences in the quality of brushes and right now, my students do not have access to brushes that are of the quality they need.
