This is really scary! and i thought we had it bad in california. First of all,
how about a 3 part unit on cubism?? use the paper and color pencils for

I didn't invent this , i think i got it from the NAEA convention in San
or one of our CAEA conventions. Do you have a state art asscociation??
Now, while those kids are busy on that project , start building your program.
CALL local businesses for donations of cash or supplies (Walmart?).Use the
for grant money. Call those parents and have a fundraiser or have them start a
school wide parents' art support system.
Can you ask the kids for materials fees or donations? If you are in a really
income area then , don't . Although my school is pretty low income and the kids
are thrilled to have their own art supplies.
Finally...put up lots of art at your district office, have art presentations for
the board of education, put up a show at the local library and call the local
newspaper.....then ask the district to increase your budget!!!!!
