Special Artists Need Special Materials

The cost of various art supplies, including colored cardstock and texture plates (from Nasco, Quill Corporation, and Kaplan Early Learning Company) is $342, including shipping and <a target="new" href="" onclick="g_openWindow('', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Once a week I have the pleasure of teaching art to a class of Pre-K students with special needs. These children love art and have a great time working on their projects. I have noticed, however, that some of the materials I have (which are geared toward normally-developing children) do not suit their needs. I feel that with a few changes the art experiences these children are having could be much more fulfilling. Our most pressing needs are glues, sticky papers for collages, and specialty paper and texture plates for sensory input. I am confident that these materials will go a long way toward making the art experience much more exciting and successful for these special artists.
