My students are motivated and highly engaged in my Digital Art classroom. I am extremely lucky to have the chance to teach Adobe Photoshop in my Digital Art classes to my 6th and 7th graders and Adobe Illustrator to our 8th graders, which are both by no means easy programs to learn! They walk out of our school being proud of the work they have created and have skills they can use in a digital career immediately!
We are the only school in our district that teaches the Adobe Suite and I want my students to be proud of that!
My students get very excited knowing they get to use digital cameras to import their own photographs into the Adobe Suite to then manipulate.
These digital cameras will help students explore the art of photography. In our Digital Art program, we currently have 15 cameras for 33 students. Some of the digital cameras we have are missing their lens cover, batteries that don't last more than 15 minutes and cameras that are older technology that are not able to produce the high-quality image my students are aiming for.
I envision getting to the point where my students are 1:1 on digital cameras in our program through donations and school funding.
My students deserve to be able to explore their creativity on properly working equipment.
