Ms. Foster from Magalia CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Students Need Art!

My students need art supplies, such as construction paper, markers, and oil pastels, to inspire creativity! I would like my students to explore drawing and painting with different types of art media.

My Students

Nestled amidst forest of cedars and pines, our Title I school is one of the most beautiful schools in northern California. But more than beauty, we offer an enthusiastic teaching staff that fosters student achievement and success. We have a high at-risk, low income population, but we believe every child can succeed whatever their circumstances.

Students love coming to our school because they know they will be safe, loved and successful!

Teachers and staff are committed to providing a safe, fun, engaging environment for our students. We hold high expectations for ourselves and our students. Teachers come prepared to teach and students come ready to learn!

My Project

Sometimes I need to give my students a break from all the rigorous common-core standards! Students get excited to draw, paint and to learn new techniques of each. It's exciting to see their joy when they've created something they're really proud of. Art helps students focus, build fine motor skills and boost confidence.

Students of any language, socio-economic level, and academic level can be successful in art!

I've always wanted to produce a high-quality water color paintings, but it's hard to do on school supplied construction paper. I would also like my students to explore oil pastels and the different types of art they can produce with this media. I like to use bright, colored markers or crayons when doing art projects than involve cold and warm colors. After creating all these wonderful art projects, students like to mount them on colored construction paper for their final take-home art piece. I would love to teach more art in my room!
