My Project

I work at a Special Education school in Staten Island, New York. The cardboard and paint that are requested will be used to make our scenes come alive in our school show, Willy Wonka Jr. The costumes and props will also help our play come alive and the students can feel the emotion of the scene that they are in. It also provides a beautiful visual for the audience members.

It's a wonderful feeling to see the enthusiasm and smiles on these students' faces.

It gives them self-confidence and makes them feel that they can accomplish anything. Every year the students in our school look forward to the play and it is one of our school's largest events. However, the price of materials for the costumes and set design are very expensive.
