Ms. LeSage from Frederick CO is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Safe Storage!

Help me give my students their own space to safely store their work while minimizing contact between projects and students. These two new drying racks will help us add safe storage for up to 6 additional Art classes!

My Students

I absolutely adore my students! They are enthusiastic about making Art and aren't afraid to take risks when trying new media and techniques. They have the most interesting ideas and I love seeing them bring these ideas to life in my classroom!

My Project

During these difficult times brought on by COVID19, students and teachers have had many opportunities to adapt to our changing environment. I imagine many of these changes will impact us as well as our best educational practices for years to come.

As a Visual Arts teacher, I am learning to find new ways to set up and operate the way we share and store materials in a safer manner.

One challenge I've recently encountered is realizing just how much contact students have with materials and projects in the Art room that can be difficult to sanitize without damaging.

I am hoping to secure funding for some new mobile storage equipment (specifically, two mobile drying racks costing about $800 each) to ensure that all Art students have a place to safely store their work while minimizing contact between projects and students. These two new drying racks will help us add storage for up to 6 Art classes, which will allow us a complete set of safe storage for every student who chooses to enroll in Art courses!
