I am currently building a brand new Art program for 5th-8th grade students in rural West Virginia. Having just consolidated this year, we are now home to 3 previously different schools. I hope to give my students an in-depth experience in the different avenues art has to offer, as they deserve a diverse Art education.
A majority of my students live in poverty and do not have access to supplies that can foster their creativity: this is something I want to change.
Since this is the first year for Fayetteville PK-8, many things in our building are still a works in progress and the program is slowly growing.
With the help of the Donors, I hope I can offer more hands-on learning opportunities quicker to foster the love of art earlier in my students.
From the moment we begin to develop our motor skills, art is an integral way to express ourselves, but many schools lack the proper equipment to achieve this in the classroom. My classroom is, unfortunately, lacking in equipment; particularly in my ability to utilize ceramics as a medium.
Clay is a medium that must be fired in order to create a lasting piece that they can then glaze and display, which is why Fayetteville PK-8's new art program needs help acquiring a kiln vent.
Without a vent, there's no way to fire the students' pieces!
By donating, you can make a difference in a child's art education! We all know that there are different learning styles and preferences in our children. By aiding in my project, the students who are hands-on learners will be able to express themselves through creating with clay.
