Ms. Bowers from Boise ID is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Pioneering Young Artists

Help me give my students access to artist supplies (like twistable crayons, oil pastels, paint brushes, and more) and materials necessary to provide opportunities for arts integration throughout this school year and stools on which to sit.

My Students

I have the privilege of teaching second grade at one of the most amazing schools in Idaho. We are a school of choice with an emphasis in arts integration. Students come from a variety of area neighborhoods to attend our school.

My students are fun, creative, eager and full of curiosity.

Integrating arts into our curriculum provides opportunity for my students to deepen critical thinking, collaborate with one another, and explore their inner creativity. It's amazing to watch these young artists at work.

My Project

My students attend an arts-integrated school. However, because of funding, purchasing art supplies such as modeling clay, poster board, a variety of paints for specific projects is not always possible.

These basic art supplies and tools will be used by students daily as they create a wide variety of art projects designed to deepen their understanding of subject matter.

My students incorporate a variety of art mediums throughout our lessons. I am requesting pompoms, hot glue sticks, glitter, a supply of paints, brushes, speciality papers, coloring tools, among other specific materials to create art projects. The two stools will provide additional seating to enable me to create additional workstations for students to work on projects around the classroom.
