Ms. Belefski from Denver CO is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hacking the Art World!

My students need access to technology that will enhance art projects by deepening creative problem solving skills, enhance critical thinking, create authentic collaboration, communication and uninhibited curiosity.

My Students

We believe a high-quality public education should be well within the grasp of students in every neighborhood of Denver, but we also know that for many students, that opportunity is out of reach. That’s why we extend deep into the communities we serve to become more accessible to all families who choose STRIVE Prep, including those who live down the street, around the corner and at the end of the block. 87% are eligible for free and reduced lunch, 97% students of color, 49% English language learners and 13% receive special educational services.

We meet students exactly where they are, challenging, encouraging and supporting every child with the tools and resources needed to push them beyond the limits of their previous achievements.

My Project

Our students have limited access to age appropriate technology. 21 Century skills are necessary to compete in today's global economy. Cameras and drawing tablets will give students the opportunity to use creative problem skills to create digital works of art. Students will learn how to properly use, manage, care for and create using the cameras and drawing tablets. The camera provides the ability to document their world using their own personal lense and learn how to create strong compositions. The drawing tablets can be used to manipulate images, create animations and graphic design. The digital arts pushes student learning beyond social media and will teach them invaluable lifelong skills.
