Ms. Keller from Harrisonburg VA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Welcome to YOUR Art Studio

Help me give my students opportunities for self-regulation, sensory experiences, and gross motor skill practice. The Liquid Floor Tiles will provide all three while continuing to provide a rich art learning experience.

My Students

My students are AWESOME! They love coming to the art studio to experiment and practice new skills.

More than half of my students come from high trauma and/or low-income households.

It is very important that they have a safe space where they can express themselves and feel loved and supported.

Our school is nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Our students speak over 30 languages and they represent cultures from all over the world. I am very humbled to be their art teacher. They continue to teach me something new each day.

My Project

Welcome to YOUR Art Studio. This is what the sign says outside of my classroom door. It's simple but it means a lot to my students. It is their space to express themselves as artists. Many of my students come from low income and/or high trauma households. It is very important to me that they feel safe, welcome, and loved.

My students are often overwhelmed with trauma and fear; they need opportunities to learn how to self-regulate so that they can just enjoy being kids.

Like many, my students are more engaged when their needs are met. The products that I have chosen will provide my students with calming ways to self-regulate so that when they are ready they can join their classmates in all the art-making fun.
