Currently, I am teaching Visual Art at Bruce Elementary School. We are a Title 1 school in the heart of midtown Memphis. We have been working hard to make academic gains with our scholars and this year earned a Level 5 as well as the honor of being one of Tennessee’s Reward Schools. I teach over 475 students each week the foundational skills for art making and problem solving using consumable materials. Funding to provide experiences and opportunities for my ‘Masters in the Making’ is limited which in turn means so is what we are able to produce. Your donation will help me provide a variety of mediums for my scholars to explore.
We were invited by Theatre Memphis to create an art exhibit for their show The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. The students chosen for this project did amazing pieces which Sold Out! - just like the production. The money raised from that project has launched us into the exciting opportunities with ceramics.
Look out world we are coming to Inspire YOU!

Over the years, I have collected many hands-on activities for my students to explore their creative side other than the scripted art activity or lesson. So many fun things from board games to building blocks, and almost everything in between (Magna Tiles (which I would LOVE to have more!!!!) Lincoln Logs and even Tinker Toys…). These items need a permanent place to live that is accessible to my students. I bookshelf or storage cabinet would be an AMAZING addition to my classroom. Sadly, my district funding is only to be spent on consumables. This is where you would come in — your donation would allow me to purchase a storage area that keeps these items close to my students when they finish early or have earned a day to explore the art studio.
Please consider donating to this 'Wish List' item as well as sharing this fundraising project with others. Together we can make a difference!
