My Students

My students are young and energetic. They are bursting with talent and creativity. I have a plethora of freshmen this year that show great signs of becoming wonderful artists.

That being said, I would like them to be able to have anything they need to help their budding talents truly bloom.

These kids need all the help they can get. Many don't have the means of having decent supplies and that's why I want to help them. I want to show them that people care about them, their lives, academics, and talents. These kids need people in their lives who can do that and I want to be that person for them. Excelsior. Onward and upward!

My Project

My students create a lot of amazing art and in doing so they go through color pencils and sharpies like crazy. They have amazed me at every turn with the creativity and vitality in their art. They need these supplies desperately, because of all the work they have done.

Without the needed supplies they won't be able to add their art to the world and the world would be poorer for it.

Color pencils and sharpies are the primary elements of many of the projects we do in my class. By helping to fund this project you would not only be helping my students keep making wonderful art, but it will help them continue on their paths to the future.
