Mrs. Pokorny from Royse City TX is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Pumped Up about Printmaking!

Help me give my students the printmaking supplies they need to learn the process of printmaking, such as the printing blocks and the classroom starter tools.

My Students

I have approximately 350 students in art: 250 fifth graders and 100 sixth graders. Our school is a low income, very diverse campus. My students enjoy coming to my art class because it gives them a chance to expand their creativity with projects using a variety of mediums. The crazier the things we use are, the better! Each year, my students look forward to creating new projects that I have discovered over the summer months. I can sense their excitement when they enter the art room.

My Project

I want to give my students the experience of printmaking. I know they've had some exposure to the process in elementary school but not in depth as I would like it to be. My art room has no tools or inks for printmaking.

Printmaking is an artistic process that could possibly lead to a career choice for some of my students.

I want them to learn the processes so that when they leave my classroom, they have had exposure to art skills that they could use later in life, possibly as a professional printmaker. I chose several of the basic kits so that all students have options to craft with, along with the necessary tools in order to be successful in this technique.
