Hooray! This project is fully funded

Our High School for the Arts, established in 2002, is building a bridge between academics and the arts in an effort to help traditionally underperforming students succeed. The majority of our students come from low-income households. Most of our students enter our program lacking the arts training and exposure needed to be accepted at the city's top arts high schools. Nonetheless, they have a genuine desire to learn about art and build strong portfolios that will enable them to apply for internships, jobs, and college art programs in the future. As the first Visual Arts teacher in our school, I am working to build a solid four-year major sequence based on the City's new Blueprint for the Arts. My goal is to create a professional arts atmosphere where students view, discuss, and write about art as they work with a wide variety of mediums and techniques. Although we do not yet have a space to set up a dedicated computer graphics lab, I hope to attain one Macintosh design station and the Adobe Graphics Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, and In-Design) for the art classroom so that students can begin learning industry standard software on the industry standard platform while working toward the Grade 12 Benchmark for Media Technology. Since I come to teaching from a background in graphic design and publishing, I look forward to teaching Photoshop, Illustrator, and In-Design on a Macintosh platform to our Graphic Design Club as they showcase our students' work in a semi-annual art and literary journal and create branding proposals for our school image (including logos, a mascot, uniforms, and a promotional brochure.) Thank you for considering this proposal. If you are interesting in funding this proposal, you may want to check out our two related proposals: “Help Build Our Bronx High School Art Program-Printmaking,” “Help Build Our Bronx High School Art Program-Painting,” and “Help Build Our Bronx High School Art Program-Art Library and Resources.” All of these supplies will help us to create an outstanding visual arts program that will continue inspiring our students to learn, create, dream, and succeed.
