Art Room Donations

Dear Parents,

I am very excited to begin another year as your child’s new Art teacher. As in past years, there will be some messy lessons requiring a paint shirt so please be sure to send one with your child. It is best if it is the T-shirt kind, not a button down one. Your child’s name and teacher code should be on it to prevent loss. Please donate any extra old T-shirts.

Please understand that depending on the lesson, and at my discretion, I may not allow children to participate if they do not have an Art shirt. I have a few on hand to let them borrow in an emergency, but please send one in soon. They don’t want to miss out or mess up their good clothes!

ALSO: Below is a list of some materials you can donate. If you have other ideas, please send a note before sending them as space is limited. We will not need cardboard tubes this year.

Beads, sequins                      buttons           yarn- ROYGBIV or neon colors

fabric scraps                          felt                   pencils, erasers                   hardly used/new sponges

ziploc bags-qt & gal            scrubby sponges

We desperately need any old frames you may want to part with so we can display work in the hall. These may be with or without glass and with a minimum size of 9 X 12.

Thanks ahead of time for your help.
