We Love To Paint!

My students need Gesso paint for a primer and 34 painting canvases.

My Students

Our school is Title I and in a very depressed and impoverished area. Many of our students are new to our country, language and culture. They all are excited about art and telling their stories by drawing and painting.

My students range in age from 1st to 5th grade, and they all love to create art.

They are new immigrants to our country and art is their favorite class because it is a universal language. I teach in a Title I district which means that the families and area is very poor. It is often hard for them to put enough food on the table in these hard economic times. Art helps all of us forget our problems and create new worlds with paint.

My Project

I teach over 200 students a quarter and supplies quickly vanish. My students enjoy expressing themselves through paint and need canvas for their art painting projects. My students need Gesso paint for a primer and 34 painting canvases. This project will give us 34 painting canvases for one class of fifth graders. The canvas is needed to develop their artistic skills through paint. The gesso is needed as a primer to cover partially painted canvases from previous classes.

When you donate to our art project, you will be inspiring many Title I students to create.

They love to paint and are constantly asking for canvas. This project will provide one class of fifth grade students with their own canvas. Thanks so much!
