Who's That Making Faces at Me? Part 1

My students need 25 sets of pastel pencils in flesh and earth tones.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My students are excited about "Making Faces" and writing about their experience. I teach 6th grade students fine arts, in a Missouri public school. At least 98 percent of the students are at risk and receive free or reduced lunch.

In a word "Zip"; I have very limited supplies. My students have shown an interest in using materials other than dried up markers and old crayons.

I need at least 25 sets of pastel pencils with flesh and earth tones so that my students can make self portraits that look like them.

You can make a difference by helping children seek to find their true nature, by looking at themselves so intently that it becomes a journey behind their skin.

Grades 6-8
Nearly all students from low‑income households
