My Students

My rural students are excited to learn about places and artists from across the world. They enjoying looking at and discussing diverse artworks. From these artworks, they learn techniques to try.

Students come into the art room excited to make their ideas come alive.

Our room functions as an art studio, filled with centers that they can visit. Drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, and clay are available for my students to use as they work self-directed on what they care about most.

My Project

We would love to have the addition of some more high-quality materials to our art room. My students love to use the Stabilo Woody 3-in-1 oil pastel pencils that we currently use. They glide across the paper in a vibrant way and help students draw lines with more confidence than with markers. We also love to use brush markers as they add a variation to the lines they make without the drying time need to paint.

When my students have good quality art materials, the experience of creating art becomes even more special.

With quality materials, the materials are taken better care for and therefore last much longer than art materials that can be found at any big box store.
