The Active Art Class

The Description

With these funds I will transform my school art classroom from standard chairs to a flexible seating active art room. Through my research and personal studies at my school, I have learned that students (especially those with ADHD, ADD, and Sensory Disorders have a greater chance of success and ability to focus when they have the opportunity to sit in a chair that allows them to move and wiggle. 

With these funds I plan to swap out my 25 chairs for new seating options such as, floor desks, wobble stools, stability ball chairs, and wobble feet to add to regular desk chairs. These alternaive seating options would be available to every student (along with regular desk chairs for those who prefer a stationary seating option). Students would be allow to pick where they sit in our art classes, in order to find what options will best meet each student's needs. 

Please check out my Youtube video that explains "My Why" in greater detail.

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal I will purchase what I can to convert my preexisting stability balls from my Action Based Learning Lab into ball chairs and the wobble feet to add to as many chairs that I can.
