My Students

My students are the most creative bunch of five year olds ever!

My kindergarten students are so creative and eager to make amazing art projects during center time each day!

Art is a great way to connect the curriculum to real life by creating paintings, collages, dioramas and much more! My school does not receive money to supply the materials necessary to create these projects.

My Project

The materials will be used almost on a daily basis in a variety of ways. We have an art center where children are able to design and create art projects that they would like to make. We also use art supplies to connect all of the curriculum to real life art projects. I have requested two different types of paint and an art kit filled with all different types of fun materials the students can make projects with.

My students do not typically have access to art materials and they are such an important part of a balanced kindergarten experience.

Every child should have the opportunity to use their imagination to paint and create and this project will allow my students the opportunity to do so!
