My Students

We are an amazing, vibrant collection of enthusiastic artists in a Title I inner-city, coastal Connecticut community where 100% of our students receive free lunch and there never seems to be an end to other urgent needs. We welcome many immigrants and transient families to our community and engage students as they navigate every kind of emotional and social challenge that you can imagine. Economic need is high, but creative passion is even higher! Please help our creative and talented students touch the wonderful materials they need to thrive and explore.

My Project

My students enjoy creating elaborate stories using action figures and wooden blocks. Recently, we acquired the dinosaur island play rug in our construction corner but our fledgling dinosaur population cannot keep up with the demands of so many excited students and their imaginative scripts. We need more characters and on a more dramatic scale....because if you are ever going to need a magically sized dinosaur in your life, it’s probably in early childhood: even better if you are sharing with 300 of your friends. Please help us turn our six foot carpet into a thriving action packed Jurassic Park! Roar!
