  • My Class Needs art supplies to create visual art projects

    Launched May 8th, 2017 Project Deadline January 10th, 2018
    Classroom Size 21 Students School Size 239 Students

    My Students

    We have a group of inquisitive Kindergarteners with a wide range of abilities and experiences, as our school is designated Inner City. Art is a medium where everyone can be successful, even our most worrisome learners. We have found that art is an effective medium for self-regulation. As such, we attempt to integrate art as much as possible into our themes. As budgets are extremely limited, our ability to purchase materials is curtailed. A grant of new materials would be immensely welcome.

    How will this project impact them?

    The project materials would support visual art lessons for the entire class as well as a permanent art station in the classroom. Having a paper drying rack would mean we'd be able to do more painting projects. Currently it is very tricky to have wet art projects in the room. (Many messes!) Having a supply of appropriate watercolour paper means we could do a lot more painting type projects. Crisp sharp new scissors would make cutting a breeze. Having metallic paint means I could teach an art lesson on Gustav Klimt. Students take both pleasure and pride in their art projects and want their family members to come into the classroom to see their masterpieces. Doing more art would engender fulfillment and self-worth within our students and community.
