Claymobile for Bache Martin K-1

Verified Non-Profit

The Description

With these funds we will bring the world class Claymobile program to all Kindergarten and First Graders at Bache Martin.  Claymobile provides high quality ceramic art education that instills a sense of creativity, possibility, and wonder in students.  Through the skillfully planned and executed classes, Claymobile teachers lead each student on a discovery of the art and science of making a functional art object they can cherish for years to come.  More important than the object, the students are given the power to create and express their thoughts and emotions through art. 

 

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal we will invite Claymobile to visit just the Kindergartners one time.

Thank you!

Dear Donors,
Thank you for your generosity! We raised enough through Pledgecents and one other source to provide three Claymobile visits to each Kindergarten and 1st Grade class at Bache Martin this year. 

The program will provide high quality ceramic art instruction to our students.  They will gain confidence and gain great memories of expressing themselves through art that will stay with them for many years. 

We are very grateful for your contributions to help us bring this wonderful program to Bache Martin students.
In gratitude,
Jennifer (Harry's mom) AND all the teachers and students in Bache Kindergarten and 1st Grade

Getting close!

March 15, 2018

Dear Donors,
Good morning! I want to share a breakdown of the reason we need to raise $2,578. 
 
The super subsidized rate the Clay Studio offers us is $200/class visit. There are three K and three 1st (with the special classes).  For them to come to K three visits (3 classrooms) it’s  $1800, and to visit 1st grade one time (to 3 classrooms) is another $600. Therefore the total $2,400 (178 in fees to Pledgecents).
 
The First Graders all had 5 visits last year in Kindergarten, so at least having one visit will be valuable to them, as they will recognize the program. I am hoping we can arrange to have the same teacher. The Kindergarteners will have three visits, which gives them a chance to dig in and understand the process and all it has to offer!
 
If we are able to exceed our original goal, we can provide more visits to each class! Working with clay is a wonderful tool for creativity, self expression, and an emotional outlet. Thanks to each of you to helping make a difference in all these students' lives.
 
In gratitude, 
Jennifer
