Replacement Brushes and Paint Markers

Help me give my students replacement brushes and paint markers to help us have a great fourth quarter!

My Students

My art students are a highly diverse group of individuals, ranging from very advanced to severely handicapped. The students also range in socioeconomic levels from the very privileged to extreme basic needs. In my classroom, the students work very hard to master to the best of their abilities the art of painting, sculpting, and drawing. They love to learn about art, art history and to practice new techniques. Some of my students cannot afford art supplies at home and do not have access to a fine art education outside of school.

My Project

Fourth quarter we will practice still-life with fruit designs, positive and negative silhouettes, complementary color relationships, illustrated poems, mythological deity illustration, and study the work of MC Escher, Georges Seurat, Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet, Frida Kahlo, and Katsushika Hokusai. The students will be at their highest skill level at this point in the school year, and they will need to have access to quality supplies. It is time for students to replace old and frayed brushes and dried up markers. The quality of materials is crucial to their success. If students don't have the right tools to express themselves and to do quality work, it can be demoralizing.
