The Monster Book — Made By Students

From the imagination of students from high school to kindergarten, comes a one-of-a-kind book.

Woodbridge, VA – June 9, 2015 – At a time when classes, such as music and art, are no longer guaranteed at school, kids need teachers like Ms. Lee Darter. This elementary school art teacher created a project that would involve students from high school, to fifth grade, to even kindergarten. This project is a book of monsters, one that will prove to students just what their imaginations are capable of.

First, a class of kindergarteners created a collection of mixed media monsters, which were then sent to a high school creative writing class. Students from that class created the backstories to the monsters that the kindergarteners had made. Both the monsters and stories went to a fifth grade Gifted & Talented class, in which those students grouped them in to a collection of 5 books. Now, these books are being sent to an AP high school art class, where students will illustrate these books.

This leaves, Ms. Darter, an art teacher of 20 plus years and the 2014 Northern Virginia Art Educator of the Year. A woman who has dedicated her life to educating the youth and advocating children to use their imagination, and express it. This extraordinary educator  wants to print these books so each student involved has one, so she started a Kickstarter, which has a goal to raise $2,500 by June 30, 2015.

To help this monster book get made and printed, please visit the campaign or click here. Anyone who pledges $250 or more will receive a student signed copy of a monster from the story.

Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the fund goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given matters! Help Ms. Lee Darter reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this the more support the campaign will receive.
