My students are the best! This is my 15th year working in my community school in Orange, NJ. I have amazing students, who are talented, smart, kind and curious. We have an amazing Principal, who supports the arts and is very generous with supplies we get for our students. Since March 17, 2020 we have been doing online classes, things have not been the same. My students don't have access to art supplies and are having hard time completing their assignments. Often I get assignment turn in with a note, "I's sorry all I had was this line paper and a pencil" I wish they had more to work with at home.
My students do not have art supplies at home to complete art assignments and practice their creativity. I want them to have basic materials to make art at home.
So far we created self portraits, designed our names in graffiti style, design logos for our favorite apps.
With these materials, such as crayons, markers and clay, my students will be able to use more than just line paper and pencils, it will give them confidence to create and share. I have so many talented students I wanted to continue practicing art at home.
