Art Donations



Dear Parent,

My name is Mrs. Potocki, I am looking forward to another fantastic school year. I will be teaching our students to enjoy, appreciate, and create art...We will look at and talk about major works/styles and cultures from around the world.


During the years as an Art teacher at Thomas Holme, I had the pleasure of working with wonderful and very talented young artists in my classroom. The artwork of our students has been recognized and awarded by organizations such as Fresh Artists and  Linback Foundation.  Thomas Holme Artists participate in art clubs, fieldtrips, art shows and win contests and awards every year for their outstanding productions. Last year our very own student has been awarded a gift sponsored by State Representative Ed Neilson for participating in a presidential poster contest.


As always we have another amazing and creative journey ahead of us in the Art Room. However, this year, in order to continue this journey we will need parents be help us be equipped with art supplies for the upcoming school year.

We cannot make this year as successful without your contribution.


If you would like to donate to our Art program, you may have the opportunity to place your desired amount in the account provided by Donorschoose.Org.  The account is a simple list of art supplies I have requested for all my students this school year. 

Please follow this link  "Art Donations", which will take you directly to an account box where you can place your desired amount. Every dollar goes a long way.

Once the dollar amount for the supplies has been met the supplies will be directly sent to our school. I thank you in advance for participating in your child's Art Program this year.
