Art has been around for centuries. Art education is vividly important for children to learn and enjoy. In the classroom, students are able to think outside of the box, be creative and stay inspired in their works of art. With that being said, it is also difficult for students to work on projects or try new things if supplies are depleted or non-existent.
As a new teacher, I will start from zero. By donating simply one dollar, that is enough to buy a pack of crayons or few glue sticks. Any donation is appreciated. I've also created an Amazon wish list if you prefer to purchase items on Amazon that will be delivered right to me and my classroom. This Summer I am teaching Art & Photography to grades 1-4 as well as 3-5th grades the 2018/2019 school year.
If you are unable to donate or purchase any items, please share with friends and family and spread the word. Thank you VERY much!!!

- Rhinestones, sequins, loose glitter, pearls, etc.
- Cotton balls

I will keep you all updated as items arrive and also when I purchase the items! Let’s hit that goal!!! GoFundMe

Children deserve the arts in their schools.

I have already started shopping for summer camp items for art! $27 at Dollar Tree did very well. Small containers for paints, bowls to use for water to clean brushes off, spray bottle for water, coffee filters for painting projects, shells to paint on, and the toothbrushes are a different form of textured brush which gives off harder strokes and beautiful effect.

I admire making people happy with my artistic vision and skills. Raising money this summer with portrait mini sessions has been extremely wonderful. Here is my first client for the summer and this is not her first time hiring me. She purchased items from the Amazon 'Art Supply' list. THANK YOU very much for your donations. I've received these donations today from two donors. I am appreciating all of the wonderful support from the community, my friends and family members throughout my campaign.
