This one has a special place in my heart as we close @29rooms NYC today. Can we help Teacher #5 create a “PS 29” student art show inspired by #29Rooms ?? Love this idea so much!! 😊😊😊
“Hi, my name is Jessica, I teach visual arts to students in PreK- 5th grade at a Title I New York City Public school. Most of my students are from low income households.
Every year I wonder, what my art supply budget will be, and sure enough this year my funding has decreased significantly.
In my years of teaching, I often run out of supplies and find myself recycling anything I can repurpose, or end up dipping into my own money. When I can, I stock up on random treasures found at second-hand stores and write proposals to donors to supplement my classroom needs.
This year I'm lucky to teach an art club for my fourth-grade students and would love to create an installation that is impactful and engaging, inspired by Refinery's ‘29 Rooms’ exhibit.
My idea would be to create a collection of ‘Rooms’ using canopy tents, paper lanterns, instamax cameras, and painting supplies. These ‘Rooms’ will allow my students to express their views on social issues such as, cyberbullying, pollution, gender equality, etc through artistic installations.
My hope is that my students will see how artists can be a voice to inspire change while promoting family involvement.
Thank you so much for your generosity & using your Instagram to help support arts education! 💗”
