My Students

My students come from all over the great city of Indianapolis. With a culturally and ethnically diverse student population our school provides students an opportunity for individuals to come together and pursue a rigorous education. Despite economic disadvantages students value hard work and the advantages of education.

With an open mind students pursue academic and personal growth through the various avenues of art exploration.

Our school culture aims to empower students to be locally involved and globally minded. We encourage critical thinking, creativity, and resourcefulness in an ever changing society.

My Project

The donations for this project will improve my classroom by insuring that all students enjoy the experience of painting.

By having a classroom set of brushes I can offer students an authentic painting experience both this year and for years to come.

For some students these brushes will supplement their personal sets but others will rely solely on what I can offer to them.

In the art room a good set of brushes is seen as an investment. They can last for many years and will aid students in learning both about the tools of painting and of course, painting itself.
