As I reflect on the pass school year, two memorable DonorsChoose projects come to mind...painting on canvas and decorating reusable canvas bags. My students had so much fun expressing themselves through these art projects. I would like the same opportunity for my incoming class.
In the coming school year, I will be teaching a class of 24 magnet students.
They attend school in a low income area and the entire school is on a government funded free breakfast and lunch program. With budget cuts, we have lost our arts programs. My hope is that through the generosity of DonorsChoose supporters, my students will have the same level of enrichment as given to my students last year.
Through various DonorsChoose projects, my former class received a large selection of acrylic paints, pallets, and canvases. They enjoyed painting like real artists. I would like to provide canvases for my upcoming class. The addition of oils and fancy brushes will give the children a total experience of being professional artists. My students also enjoyed decorating canvas bags with fabric markers to celebrate Earth Day and take one step closer to eliminating plastic bags. I would like to provide canvas bags to my incoming class so they can also make an environmental statement. We also need ink for our color printer so we can print in color for our bulletin boards, class projects, and make extra copies as needed. Finally, we need recycled lead pencils, student white board markers, and glue sticks to provide what is lacking due to budget cuts.
With budget cuts, we will not have a formal fine arts program and the money to purchase special material.
Yes, we have basic art supplies but how wonderful it would be to enrich the arts by providing canvases, oils, fancy brushes, canvas bags, fabric markers, and ink for my students! Will you help us to bring the arts back to the classroom?Read More
