My Students

My students are a spicy group of talented individuals. I came in this year to a school that hadn't had much of an art program, teachers kept leaving. I spent some of my own money to restart a lot of the supplies for the projects studying the elements of art. The students have truly begun to learn a lot of art terms, artists and subjects. At this time the department is growing. The children’s ability to create is growing and I would love the ability to show them a true gallery set up using these boards.

They’re creating amazing work, and they need the materials to show it to the community.

I am looking to help these students grow as the program will grow.

My Project

These kids are coming along better than I could have anticipated. I would love for the chance to show off their work at school based shows and these project boards can truly assist with that.

The students at my school have an amazing sense of creativity, however their confidence in their work needs to be built.

They need to see themselves the way that I see them. Please assist me with this project so I can get the art department to where it needs to be.

The students can truly "show off their talents" if they have the boards to do so.
