Recently I began working with our after school program. My job is to do printmaking and ceramics. I am lucky enough to have access to kilns and a light table.
We wanted to create t-shirts for our students. One problem….no t-shirts. A friend of mine introduced me to a website www.donorschoose.org. All I can say is WOW!
I created an account and followed the simple instructions to post my needs. Within a couple of weeks, I received 3 boxes of t-shirts in the sizes I requested for my students! And it didn’t cost me a dime! All I have to do is complete our project. Once finished, I simply complete the Thank You section. It is wonderful!
Everyone is on a budget, especially the art department. I am only allowed $500 per year! That is about $2 per student! Although I am very good at stretching the dollar, that just doesn’t go very far. Thanks to www.donorschoose.org I am able to provide for my students the art experience they deserve!
It is not only for art teachers, any teacher that needs something can apply. I encourage all teacher to check it out!
