Mrs. Rios-Travers from Los Angeles CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

The Artist Within

Help me give my students access to art supplies which will allow them to be creative during this challenging time. Having access to these supplies will provide many self-care opportunities.

My Students

The coronavirus pandemic has had an unprecedented effect on my students. I teach in a low-income neighborhood and many of my students have been without internet access or technology. Despite that, students have requested hard copies of work. Those with technology have been diligent about completing their schoolwork and reaching out for help. I am grateful my students feel comfortable with technology!

My Project

Distance learning has taught us so many lessons and has challenged us all. From teachers to students, this has been a time of self-growth. I am hoping art will provide students an outlet to express and communicate their feelings.

A time for my student to focus on a fun, creative outlet and make some time for self-care.

Within my classroom, we have numerous art supplies and students have weekly art lessons. To have this continue at home would be a great opportunity! I would like my students to have art supplies like watercolors and color pencils to express their creativity at home.
