Motivated and determined, living in a richly diverse urban, working-class community, my students thrive to engineer with a purpose. Struggling to overcome extreme economic hardship, we walk the walk and strive to make our mark through hard work and dedication, athleticism and team building.
We use art as technology to explore our creativity while challenging ourselves to learn new skills and develop new techniques as designers while promoting solutions.
Graphic artists, 2D and 3D designers, muralists, publishers and filmmakers in a multimedia lab desperately need technology and resources to create, to publish and to store their files in the school's Digital Arts Lab, keeping up with the technological advancements in software and hardware.
Seventh and eighth graders can choose Digital Arts as their elective where they learn to think critically and apply culturally relevant topics to their artwork. Digital artists design and publish artwork as graphic designers, videographers, muralists, desktop publishers, book-makers, web designers and visual artists.
In our Digital Arts Lab, once students have completed their preliminary drawings, they must produce a final draft. The best way for them to do this is by using a translucent film to trace their first draft and then ink and color it.
Students need drawing film for their final drafts and colored pencils to color.
Derwent makes the finest colored pencils and the film we are requesting will accept ink and colored pencils or any other medium.
Colored pencils and drawing film combined work hand in hand for a brilliant and permanent illustration which they can scan and add to their portfolios.
