Help me give my students products to teach financial literacy thru t-shirt design and printing!
Our students are a full spectrum with a diverse campus in race, culture, socioeconomic status and interests. Our campus serves approximately 635 students, grades 7th thru 8th and between the ages of 12 to 14. Ethnically our students are approximately 87% minorities with 45% being Latin American, 26% African American, and 13% Asian and Pacific Islander. Twenty-five percent of our students are currently an English Language Learner.
Over 75% of our students come from low-socioeconomic background, but their thirst for knowledge is fierce!
Every art career has some aspect of freelance or side businesses because of the skills and interests it brings to the world. Building an Art business is a perfect way to also integrate financial literacy. The value is not only in the importance of Art and history of itself but also economic value that it can bring the savvy artist. An artist with high ambition and the drive to make passive income can see how easy they can take an idea, create and sell their own artwork with projects we do in class. Art is expensive and instead of sending them off to bear the costs of prints we want to level the playing field with quality equipment!
With art moving towards a digital medium and art careers heavily blended with tech my students need the means to catch up.
Whats a better way to teach art skills and business than showing students another way to financial freedom with t-shirt design and creation. My digital and beginning art class will participate in creating logos from scratch, printing out design and transferring them to a t-shirt. These products such as the silkscreens, squeegee fabric ink, transparency sheets, are part 1 of the total package to get my students the equipment we need to make this happen! It will also teach them to cut costs by doing the printing themselves.
