Mr. Wiseman from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional Paper & Pencils

Help me give my students a new art experience with professional grade paper and drawing pencils.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are full of curiosity and creativity. Most of them are Hispanic, which means a high level of respect in the classroom, as well as a need for bilingual education. This entails a high level of visual and kinesthetic learning, as audio learning must be both English and Spanish.

Although this group of respectful students deserve every advantage, they have to make do with less.

My kids live in the second poorest zip code in Oklahoma City. Most of them qualify for free & reduced lunch programs. Although they don't always have the best materials, my students are curious, creative, and ready to learn.

My Project

The kleenex and Clorox wipes will mean a germ-free environment in the art classroom. Additionally, the Clorox wipes are necessary for painting of any kind, so that the students can clean up quickly for maximum learning time.

Paper and pencils are a necessary part of any art class.

This professional grade paper and pencil set will give my students a new experience with drawing and shading in pencil. We have been using regular number two classroom pencils and plain copy paper. With your help, instead of working with copy paper and number two pencils, my students be working with professional artist tools.
