My Students

My CAMS (Creative Artists Middle School) design team is a specially selected group of young artists who are so dedicated that they beg to have lunch in the art room to spend extra time working on their technology/video art projects. Some were chosen for this team because of their art and technology skills, but all were chosen for their enthusiasm, potential, and dedication. They work individually or cooperatively as partners and teams. In a short time since I created this class, they have bonded like professionals. While a few are blessed with technology in their homes, others cannot afford professional art supplies and view technology as a luxury.

My CAMS team ranges from gifted to special-needs students and mid-range students who wouldn't necessarily be recognized for other accomplishments.

Many deserving students who are not in this class ask to join CAMS each trimester. I cannot offer this opportunity to as many students as I would like. I don't have enough equipment to properly accommodate the present students. Present and future students, as well as those who learn techniques from our art videos,​ would benefit from added technology.

My Project

An Apple iPad will help my students reduce the time they wait to create, record and edit their art tutorials for our special CAMS (Creative Arts Middle School) team. Since entering CAMS students have learned that there is more to making videos than recording and posting the games they play online. But when a student spends creative time perfecting an art video project​ only to find that their borrowed equipment is too outdated to transfer or save a file they feel cheated. They are proud of their creative efforts but no one outside our classroom will see it.

The Creative Arts Middle School team would like to create a visual library for students who struggle to understand simple art concepts by creating videos to explain art elements and design principals.

This would be a valuable resource for me and all of my classes, especially for students entering art for the first time or for new students who arrive after concepts have already been covered. Students often learn best from peers, but lack of equipment limits our time and ability to build our own art video library.

Presently CAMS students create short videos about how they make their individual works of art. They learn life skills through team building activities and how real-life design teams work. I loan them my personal cameras, iPad, iPhone, and Mac Book in class. Students have been respectful of my equipment, but I do not have enough to support an entire classroom and toting these items back and forth each day from home to school has become exhausting.

I request high standards from my CAMS team not only in the classroom but also as role models in the school. They have not disappointed me, and they deserve proper equipment to do their best work.
