My Students

My school has been known for excellent academics, building a rich heritage for many years. It has always attracted the best and the brightest students in our city. This is an application school for high-performing and gifted students, serving grades Pre-Kindergarten to 8.

My art students are very talented artists who truly love creating art.

The young artists here create excellent artwork in many mediums. Every day they impress me with unique ideas and a passion for art. Unfortunately, my art students do not have all the supplies for painting.

My Project

My art classroom needs white drawing paper to create art. We used to be supplied with wonderful manila paper great for drawing and sometimes painting. Now we get little paper for drawing, and in the art room, we use a lot of paper. My students really love art and are a very creative group. We need paper for drawing, white construction paper, manila drawing paper, and watercolor paper for watercolor painting.

Without your help, this very important resource will not be available to my students.

My students will continue to learn about the many areas of art and how artists can create art with many medias. Like many teachers, I have spent my own money to have just enough supplies for my classroom. Your donation to my art classroom will give my students enough of this very basic supply.
