Mrs. Love from Henderson NV is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Quality Art From Egypt!

Help me give my students real watercolor paper to create paintings on with fine pointed brushes. Black & silver Sharpies allow them to draw freely without hesitation, or second thought to erase. Finally, hole punches for each team!

My Students

Art is an integral part of the development of each human being. The art room is a place where creativity thrives and lets students safely explore their imaginations away from poverty, away from trauma, away from any outside distractions.

The students I serve attend a Title One school in Nevada, where one hundred percent of the students receive free breakfast and free lunch.

Many also participate in weekend food programs as well. Despite the odds, students show up with smiles, eager to learn and talking about how they will be successful each day and how they will continue to be successful when they are older. They are truly the future and deserve an outstanding school to learn and grow in!

My Project

My students have limited access to materials when creating art. For many, the school art studio is the first and only place they have the opportunity to work with art materials other than crayons, glue, and scissors.

Providing my students quality art supplies allows them to fall more deeply in love with expressing themselves, pushing the limits of their own imagination, with any art tool they choose.

Having fine pointed brushes will allow for greater detail in painting. Real watercolor paper allows the colors to stand out, rather than run and rip. By using Sharpies, my students spend more time planning and completing their designs, and less time erasing.

One large part of the use of these supplies is a unit on Ancient Egyptian Art. 4th & 5th grade students will be learning about Egyptian symbols and making a Scarab Beetle. The metallic Sharpies are sure to bring the pictures to life! As well as bring excitement to the students. The brushes will be used for detail work with existing gold paint.
