My Students

We are an amazing, vibrant collection of enthusiastic artists in a Title I inner-city, coastal Connecticut community where 100% of our students receive free lunch and there never seems to be an end to other urgent needs. We welcome many immigrants and transient families to our community and engage students as they navigate every kind of emotional and social challenge that you can imagine. Economic need is high, but creative passion is even higher! Please help our creative and talented students touch the wonderful materials they need to thrive and explore.

My Project

We have this amazing carpet that has roads all over in it. Unfortunately, our classroom population and our car supply do not currently match. We are hoping to correct this demand problem, "That's MY car.", with these super cool "build-a-car" kits. Similar to the LEGO idea, the interchanging multi-function parts in this kit offer a variety of outcomes. The creative possibilities make this more art than just play. These car kits are made for years of tough use and will benefit hundreds of children for years to come. Students will create vehicles that are sure to bring the fire station, police station and post office to life.
