Ms. Draper-Rosin from Midland MI is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a printing press and linoleum so they can experience printmaking in my art classroom.
Because we are an alternative school, we serve a very specific population of students who haven't been successful in a traditional school environment. Our student population has a high free or reduced price lunch rate, and most of our students are first-generation college-going students. At least 90% of this year's graduating class will be full Pell eligible.
Despite being described as economically disadvantaged, our students are extremely hardworking, determined, and full of life.
They thrive in the highly independent environment of an alternative school and participate in our school culture, enriching it with their own unique gifts and perspectives. While juggling family responsibilities, part-time jobs, and the daily struggles of navigating young adulthood, our students approach each day and task with enthusiasm. They readily ask for help when they need it and are quick to understand the next step.
Our students value their art education and love the hands-on activities it affords them.
I teach at an alternative ed high school. We do not have a lot of money for supplies. I try to scrounge up things from many different sources such as a local printing company and leftover house paint. Some items just need to be new such as the printing press and linoleum I am requesting.
Purchasing the printing press and linoleum will allow my students to participate in an additional aspect of art that they have not been able to experience yet.
This project will also include other classes as I will have my wood class build the bench hooks. We have some ink and cutters that were donated and would like to be able to use them.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
