An Art Teachers Bestfriend!

Standard

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!
