Ms. Swan from Kansas City MO is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Virtual Art Studio

Help me give my students the gift of art. These bags will have everything they need for the semester so they can set up their own mini artist studio right from their desk.

My Students

These students inspire me every day! They are Trailblazers (literally, it's our school mascot)! Together they have endured so much and always have a positive attitude despite these COVID challenges. They are an eager bunch of middle schoolers and who seem to always be looking for new ways to create.

We are a newer school so our class is pretty small, but that doesn't stop us from making a big splash in our community.

We have been fortunate enough to attend some virtual field trips and outdoor sculpture walks this past semester.

My Project

Each subject has its own unique challenges with virtual learning and as a Middle School Art teacher, I have found that the most challenging part of virtual learning has been getting the proper supplies to my artists. I hope that by getting these supplies in the hands of my these students, they will feel fully prepared and confident to share their art. This will eliminate both the students and parents feeling that they need to ask for assistance with supplies as each student will have the same great quality of supplies to express themselves.

Not only will these kits have supplies for painting and drawing but students will be given a small mask making kit for a mask give away.

Through this project, they will learn a viable life and art skill as well as help keep their community safe.

Each donation is greatly appreciated as each kit costs about $7 to assemble and be dropped off to each child. Thank you for your consideration and donation.

Make art, make change!
