I am an art teacher in a high need community. As part of an enrichment opportunity for the students, I teach an advanced art class offered to a selected class of approximately twenty students grades third through fifth. With my budget of $100 for an entire art curriculum K-5, finding money for such possibilities is hard.

When deciding what to do with this special class the students brainstormed various ideas. This was one of them. I hope to put all the projects on this site. I plan to keep the class informed of our financial status so the correlation can be made between the arts and grants, donations, and commissions.

In my art classes I do a lot of projects with paper. It is one of the cheapest materials and it has many different possibilities. However, this advanced art class would like to go beyond paper and glue, cardboard hand looms and yarn. As a class we would like to become more sculptural and three dimensional. I think sock puppets are a great way to connect the visual arts to performing arts. The final stage of this project would be skits performed by groups of four.

We are a school where poverty prevails. In this project I am asking for more money than I get in a year for 260 students. Please help.
