My students need painting supplies and easels to be able to explore new media emphasizing on Impressionism and Post Impressionism; displaying the projects each month as well utilizing our easels for classroom work.
I am a 2nd year art teacher at Imagine School in Lakewood Ranch. I left a corporate position to find absolute joy in teaching art in a very small charter school.
We are a true family; made up of remarkable teachers, staff, students and parents.
Our learning environment continues to grow and become more successful due to the hard work of the staff and students. This last year we raised our academic score a grade and plan to excel again this year.
My students come into class every day curious about the next project and what new artist they will learn about! They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and curious about the world. They truly inspire me. My goal is to grow the schools art program to include more painting and pottery and hopefully digital design for our middle school students!
The acrylic paints and brushes will allow my students to create paintings that actually show texture with paint on the acrylic paper. I will use these supplies to teach a unit on impressionism and post impressionism. I can also use the paint to do other projects using utilitarian concepts and 3D works. Most of my students do not have any type of supplies in their home so these supplies will expose them to visual arts in ways they would normally not have. The easels will be used in every class I teach from K-8 and not just for painting. Many of my younger kids need to stand to focus better. The easel will allow them to stand ergonomically and focus on the work in front of them. I will also be able to use them to do in-house art shows and displays in our media center for our staff, students families to enjoy. These will be items we use for years with hundreds of students to come.
My students have expressed a lot of interest in painting and have continued to shock me at their talent and abilities!
My art program is funded on fundraising. Without the help of generous donors, we can not afford the cost of painting materials. Please help me to get my students the supplies we need for a successful art program.
