Many children don’t even receive supplies to draw, paint, cut, glue or explore art at their school because of educational cuts. I supply art bags to many lower income schools. This year the children got a special ART bag and BOOKS! I concentrated on drawing materials for Kindergarten and 3rd grades.
Why not paint with your feet?
Perfect Spring art clay hearts and sunflower cards. Messy hands and feet make a happy Heart. Red Indian clay sealed with Mod podge.
Happy faces! Children love the Art bags full of surprises for creative thinking and ART.It was a surprise when I just left them off for a lucky 3rd grade class. They later received Christmas stockings too. Even the teacher was surprised.
Art allows a child to process information creatively and develop a sense of belonging. Art can redirect anger, unhappiness, loneliness and build self confidence. Art is a perfect match for a child to develop HIS or HER sense of belonging to a community.
I distribute about 60 Art Bags, and 20 Christmas Creative Gifts a year to children in hospitals, low-income schools, foster homes, church ministries and directly with needy families. Supporting the young learner and preteens. I try to teach some classes to young artists to teach the teachers HOW to use supplies and teach children by gathering and collections. I am an advocate of teaching the child to think in a creative process method, by developing a foundation of creative ability. My charities support Southern Arizona and Greater Tucson Areas.
