Sharp Art! Never A Dull Moment

My students need a wall mount pencil sharpener, a desktop scissors sharpener, and electric pencil sharpeners to sharpen up all of our dull materials.

My Students

"Art is a place for children to learn to trust their ideas, themselves, and to explore what is possible." ~ MaryAnn F. Kohl, Children's Book Author. As one of my favorite quotes from an arts education supporter, this quote embodies what happens in our art classroom.

My students strive to do their best in everything that they do.

They are always eager to learn more and I am constantly excited to introduce new materials and techniques. Even with the fanciest materials and techniques we will always go back to basics. In our classroom now, even the most basic material of all is hard to provide. Sharpened pencils!

My Project

I can assure any and all that donate that all of the sharpeners we are requesting will be used every single day. An art classroom can't function without sharpened pencils to draw with and our current pencil sharpeners are on their last leg. These new sharpeners will bring so much to our classroom. Every single class period my students wish for sharpened pencils that aren't hard to write with, and with your donations I can very easily provide this for them.

Getting this project funded will mean that my students can spend less time worrying about whether their pencil is too dull to draw with and more time and effort into how to turn their projects into masterpieces!

With sharpened pencils in our classroom, there will never be a dull moment again!
