RE: art budget

I teach 8-12th grades and the $25 per student is for a full year.
I have my classes broken down into Art 1- drawing, color theory, fiber
arts/weaving, mixed media..., Art 2 more advanced drawing, intro to 3-D,
intro to ceramics, intro to painting... and then Advanced painting,
Advanced Drawing, and Advanced Ceramics.

 Unfortunately, I am in a district where I am the first (and only)
opportunity the students get to take an art class. I try to expose them
to many different experiences so that the students can at least get a
look around and realize that art is not only ________ or_________.

Sorry that this post is a little on topic and a little off.. I wanted
to give more info on what my budget goes towards.


are you high school? middle school?
I teach middle (6,7,8) and have $10 per head. This is for a cycle of
nine weeks.

Subject: art budget

I have been reading about the art budgets and at different schools and
was curious how much per student we are talking about. If I could
document an adverse maybe I could at least show some resistance to
being cut again. I have seen my available funds cut in half since I
started teaching in this district (I have been here 7 years) while my
enrollment has gone down 20%. I receive aprox. $25 per student and the
student supplies half of that through fees.
