I teach an age range between TK and 8th grade at both an elementary and middle school. We have plenty of amazingly talented artists. Our students are very creative and always seeking new ways to create art. I love that they come in ready to make art.
We live in an active art community and strive to give our students the support they deserve in the arts.
Having many students that have artists as parents, or relatives makes it even more challenging to give them the art program they deserve.
Students ranging from TK to 5th grade deserve to experience the age of digital art. Having a printer in the elementary art room would create a digital friendly environment. We would be able to create using digital mediums, such as photography! We also use printers to access photo references when using other mediums.
Having a printer will make it easier and less disruptive to our classroom environment.
We often have to send students down to the office to get their print jobs. Not having access to a color printer is another reason having a printer in the art classroom would be great! Black and white just doesn't do our work justice sometimes!
