My Students

We are an inner-city school with a high poverty rate and ethnically diverse population. My students are creative and spend their days not only attending core classes like Math, Science, and English, but a variety of art classes like Drama, Martial Arts, Guitar, and Photography.

Our school prepares students for college in an academically challenging, arts-integrated environment.

Not only are my students involved in extra-curricular activities, but they are also dedicated to their grades. Many stay at school until five or six pm, either in tutoring or attending a club meeting. My students are well rounded and participate in activities like volleyball, ballroom dance, basketball, cheerleading and a variety of clubs from Student Council to National Honor Society and everything in between.

My Project

Currently, my students are lacking proper watercolor sets for painting in our classroom. We could use a class-sized number of sets in traditional colors, as well as some additional sets including metallic colors. Such supplies would enable us to work on a variety of painting projects including watercolor landscapes and gradient studies. They would enable the students to practice an important foundational skill.

These watercolor sets would benefit the students enrolled in all levels of Visual Art at our school.

Whether a student is enrolled in a beginner, intermediate, or advanced course, watercolor painting provides opportunities to enhance skills and understanding of art-making fundamentals.
