Mrs. Montes from Fort Worth TX is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Starving Future Artist in the Making!

My students need basic art supplies, paint, and brushes to let their creativity flow and experience some form of art. We don't have art on our campus.

My Students

I have a melting pot of personalities in my classroom. I have a hugger! I have an uncontrollable crier-very emotional, a test-the-limits, a couple of sweeter than honey kids, a couple smarty pants, overall my kids are great. They have huge hearts! They always want to give second chances to their peers even to those peers that constantly need reminding of the rules. They teach me to have joy in everything you do, see, and touch. So many things are new to them, that it brings joy to me when I see their reactions to new discoveries.

My Project

The products that I have chosen will help my student express their creativity. When I tell my kids about my old art teachers and tell them about all my fond memories I had, they just don't get it. I tell them about painting self-portraits, making a collage with painting lines, textures, working with clay, making paper flowers, making paper maiche dolls and so many other projects. They just have no clue what I am talking about. Some of my kids have never experienced mixing two colors to make a new color. When I tell them about mixing the colors, they are mystified. I am not sure why we don't have art on our campus. Sadly, my little six year olds will miss out on discovering the artist within and the world might lose out on the next Picasso.
