WHITEVILLE, N.C. (WECT) - One of the first things children learn how to do is color with crayons. Art is an integral part of development.

“Long before they develop writing, they can express themselves with art,” Kathy Butler, a Pre K-2 teacher at Williams Township said on her DonorsChoose page. “In our class, they draw about their feelings, illustrate math problems and stories, as well as create acts of kindness for others.”

Butler is asking for donations through DonorsChoose, an online charity that helps teachers get funding for school supplies. She’s hoping donors will help her purchase basic art supplies for her students.

“Our project ‘Let’s Get Artsy’ is requesting art supplies -- paint, markers, pens, paper for the art we incorporate is all of our subjects,” she said.

Butler needs $404 to get the items. Once she is fully funded, DonorsChoose will purchase the art supplies and deliver them to the school.
