Donors Choose Books!

A couple months ago I was encouraged by Erica from Art Project Girl to try out Donors Choose. I wrote a project proposal for a book display and 28 awesome art books and the project was funded! It was a pretty easy process and I didn't even know all of the donors. I did know some. They're pretty awesome.
We've been thrilled with the new reading center in the art room. Check out the photos from the thank you package here

Up next, I try to get a tablet so students can document and share their artwork and a storage shelf to create a collage center with room for all the supplies to be displayed in a location the students can actually reach!
