Project Description

The 2017 -2018 school year marks an exciting time as both schools are consolidated to Guardian Catholic School.This greatly anticipated union will be punctuated with the opening of a brand new school building and an expanded enrollment. As the current traveling art teacher for both schools, I am hoping to raise $2,500 to purchase paint supplies and a drying rack for the new art room. I teach 23 classes of students in grades PK3 to 8th and can see as many as 120 students in a day. My current dry rack, while resourceful, consists of a very “kid unfriendly” stack of cardboard mailing boxes that can accommodate about 30 paintings. This means we are very limited on the amount of painting we can do. Many of my students come from homes that do not have even simple art supplies like crayons and colored pencils. To see their faces light up each morning when they see me arrive and yell out, “Do we have art today?” gives me my greatest joy, knowing I am helping students to feel excited about exploring their artistic capabilities brings the greatest joy to my heart. To limit their opportunity to have rich experiences like painting and printmaking because I have no place to put wet artwork is heartbreaking. Please help me reach this goal by donating to our cause.
