The Next Picasso Is In My Classroom!
The Met. The MoMa. The Whitney. Our classroom. My students have been visiting museums to see world famous art and now with your help we're ready to create our own.
My students are a group of energetic and enthusiastic learners. We have been visiting museums all year and studying different ways that artists tell stories. Each trip is accompanied by an art project as well. My students love these trips and the opportunities to create their own artwork.
At the same time, my students are overcoming many challenges. Almost all of my students qualify for free lunch. Most of my students do not speak English at home, and almost all of my students are below grade level in reading and math. In addition, our classroom doesn't have a lot of art resources that would allow my students to experiment with different artistic media.
My Project: So far my students have had a chance to use ordinary classroom materials like pencils, crayons, and markers to create their own artwork. The pastels, watercolors, charcoal and frames will allow my students to create and display an amazing variety of artwork. The sense of excitement and pride these materials will generate is immeasurable.Your support will transform my students' experience with art. They already love their trips to museums and every chance they have to draw and color. These supplies will allow my students to explore, experiment and grow as artists and people. This journey of discovery can only happen with your help.
