My students need materials to create their artwork. They love creating with all kinds of media, but their favorites are tempera cakes and of course clay.
"Some people only dream of meeting their favorite artist, I teach mine." I work in two Title 1 schools with about 900 students altogether. The two schools are located in a rural area of North Carolina. These students come from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds. There is an average amount of parent support. It is a great place to be an educator. Parents do help with some supplies but again I serve about 900 students.
The students are special because they come with an abundance of excitement and curiosity about art.
They are super creative and hard working. They inspire those around them and inspire me to give them the best art education I can. I want my students to experience art in an authentic way. Resources are limited due to budget cuts and I do not want that to hinder me from giving them that experience. I want them to be just as passionate about art as I am.
Each grade level typically makes 4-5 projects a year. When creating lessons for my students I try to incorporate different media for each one. I often build off what they have learned the year before and add in different media types for their projects. I also strive to incorporate what they are learning in their regular classrooms with what I am teaching them in art and of course, I have to throw in a famous artist as well.
The only problem with doing all of this is supply money.
North Carolina teachers do not receive any funding for their classroom supplies. And as we all know art supplies are NOT inexpensive, especially when you are serving two schools and approximately 900 students. Donating to this project will help me better supply my students' creations.
Each year my fourth graders chose an animal native to North Carolina to draw and paint. I teach them how to create value using tempera cake paints. The rule is a little water for the dark, shadowy areas and a lot of water for the lighter parts of their animals. These turn out wonderful each year and the students love doing them. Each year the North Carolina State Employees bank does a hanging of these pieces of artwork. Another project that would benefit from these supplies, is my kinder watercolor resist snowflakes. The students learn about Snowflake Bentley. They look at references of his snowflakes and draw their own using white oil pastels. Then they use watercolor to paint over the snowflakes and like "magic" they appear on the paper. We then sprinkle salt on the watercolor and it gets even better.
These materials will benefit ALL of my students! Please help me to "supply" my students with what they need to be creative.
