In our Azeri community, it is hard to find fluent Georgian speakers among adults or students at my school, where I am an assistant teacher. The children are very motivated to learn Georgian, and I want to help them fulfill their goals.
Recently, I discovered that my students learn more new words while painting than during ordinary classes and the material learnt during such an activity is more solid and interesting. We paint/draw everything, we color, talk about seasons, weather, human moods.
Teaching language through art is so effective that we have exhausted all the school's art resources. We would like painting materials, beautiful posters, inspirational photos for models, a board with magnets and if possible, toys. However, many poor parents can’t even afford to buy even one drawing book.
Carrying out my initiative will benefit all the interested pupils of our school. The school director promised us to allocate a special room where we will carry out different activities in order to teach Georgian better.
With art, Georgian classes are by now the most favorite and desired by all the pupils, but I intend to expand my classes with this material to adults. As an ordinary Georgian citizen, I have a great desire to teach Georgian free of charge to anyone interested by holding classes after school.
The obtained items will stay with the school and its pupils, and it is possible to give the socially vulnerable pupils part of the toys, which they miss very much. As for the sustainability of the idea, I know that every day at school will be a very positive sparkle for each pupil.
Equal gender opportunity:
I will teach anyone interested: boys, girls, men and women.

We learn many needed words while playing, so our toys have an additional purpose than just playing.
