Mrs. Stambach from Fresno CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Comic Con and Anime Come to Life

My students need 3 digital bamboo tablets for digital drawing, "how to draw books" for drawing on the tablet, and "how to draw animation" resources for digital videos.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach technology to 220 middle school students. I am also the sponsor for our school's Anime Club with over 65 active members.

Last year I purchased a small Bamboo Tablet. My students used it to draw prize winning posters, animated commercials, and experiment with drawing. During this time the enrollment doubled in my Anime Club.

The one Bamboo digital tablet I purchased is in high demand. I was very surprised how the students felt it was so natural to draw with the tablet. Between the Anime Club I run and the various digital video applications I use in my classes and for student contests, the added 3 Bamboo tablets and the how to resources will greatly increase the students' hands- on time. The finished product brings the students great pride in their work and new skills.

Students are really into drawing. Look at the sold out attendance at Comic Con to see the popularity of drawings. Please allow these students the opportunity to get an early instructional digital arts experience of success.
