My Students

Kids love color! The brighter the better, and when we are using over-worked watercolor paints and standard colored pencils it can be difficult for kids to achieve the results they want out of their art projects.

My students are wonderfully creative souls in grades pre-school to 8.

They know that they are very lucky to have art every week in a public school, and do a truly amazing job on their art projects. We explore everything from clay to crayons and collage, but for most of the students, painting is their favorite. With the materials that this project would provide, my students would be able to create beautiful paintings, exploring ideas from oceans to Egyptian art and back to Impressionism!

My Project

My students would be overjoyed to open their watercolor palette to find that every color available is filled and vibrant! I will be delighted to refill all of my ailing watercolor pans with the new refill colors to see what beautiful paintings and drawings they can make.

Art consumables go so quickly in a school where every student in the building is able to use them.

These materials will help me keep up with my students constant requests to paint, rather than turning them down to conserve materials.
