My Students

In our school, everyone now qualifies for free breakfast and lunch every day. In families that struggle so much just to put food on the table, fun and creativity are not allocated precious family resources. This is the second year that these children are experiencing Art in school. As the Art Teacher, I see each and every one of our 750 students at our school, every six days. I also see every teacher in the school when they bring their students to my class. They have related numerous stories of their kids excitedly talking about the art class.

The Art Class has also garnered participation from students who rarely participate in other classes.

As an Art Teacher, I am thrilled to bring creativity and self-expression to all my students, especially those who otherwise wouldn’t have this opportunity. That being said, art supplies are used up quickly and need to be replaced often. Since it would be a burden for these families to support our class, we sincerely hope that you will help.

My Project

We use watercolor paint in our classroom but I can not teach the techniques of watercolor because we are not using the correct paper. We are using sulphite drawing paper instead of paper made for watercolor. Our problem is the water and pigment soaks through the paper and does not react the way they are intended. With watercolor paper the water and pigment stays on the surface of the paper and creates transparent color that is mesmerizing for students.

Having watercolor paper will allow my students to learn how to create a gradient wash, wet on wet techniques, and charging in other colors that make a wow statement as they create art and in their finished piece.
