Turn This Art Room into an Art Studio!

My students need basic art supplies such as paper, markers, watercolors, chenille stems, a paint dispenser, and glue.

My students make art out of anything and everything available. They have brilliant ideas but our art program lacks the supplies for them to create. I teach 375 very inventive pre-kindergarten to 8th grade art students in a low-income school. They need essential materials before they can see themselves as the artists they are.

We have just begun to treat the art room as a true artist's studio in which the students choose what materials to use in creating their artwork. My students have a broad range of interests and artistic abilities. Each thrives when using their own creativity as fuel. In the art studio, centers are arranged with different supplies so that students can work at their own paces according to their own interests. Students learn from one-on-one instruction, working in groups, and class demonstrations. However, our classroom needs supplies to function as a place where artists go to create.

We need basic supplies such as paper, watercolors, glue, paint dispensers, chenille stems, and markers. My students are very resourceful with the materials we already have. They would certainly use these supplies to their fullest potential in painting, drawing, collage, and sculpture centers. Dispensers would also allow students to get the materials they need quickly. The art studio ought to be a place for students to explore. These supplies will ensure that.

With your donation, the young artists at my school will be able to present quality artwork that they have created independently, something to hang on the wall, not just temporarily on the fridge.
