Creative Connections Through Digital Art-Making!

Help me give my students a chance to have whiteboard drawing lessons and an opportunity to connect with me visually through Zoom for a better chance of continuing their art education.

My Students

No one could have foreseen that we would be teaching from home. Never did I imagine that when my students and I said goodbye in March that it would mean that it was our last day in the classroom together. I never would have thought technology would play such a huge role in teaching art. However, our year is not over and we have lots to learn!

My students and I have embarked on a distance learning artistic journey together.

We are actively engaging in Seesaw, Google Classroom, and Zoom. In fact, every grade level meets once a week for Zoom meetings... checking in with each other and getting direct lessons in Art & Music. All of us are definitely learning new things. I hope to record lessons at home for my students to view on YouTube and for asynchronous lessons. I am already amazed by their level of engagement and participation, and families' willingness to connect and try new things.

My Project

Every day, more and more of my amazing art students have been connecting to the digital platforms that our schools are using such as Google Classroom, YouTube, Seesaw, and ZOOM. They are completing online lessons and art projects. However, I believe my students would benefit greatly from video art lessons recorded for YouTube, directed drawing lessons on the whiteboard through Zoom, and connecting with our wonderful music & art teachers directly.

This project will provide me with an iPad and an Apple pencil, so I can create HOURS of student learning.

With these amazing tools I can help reach more of my students and create more authentic connections.

Once we excitedly return to school, my phenomenal students will benefit immensely by having an iPad in our classroom that is dedicated for uploading artwork and video creation. Please consider helping us navigate through these uncertain times.
