My Students

My multimedia students are creative and bright individuals who are beginning to discover who they are as digital artists and how their art fits into our world. In my class, I believe that all of my students are artists even if they haven't experienced success as an artist yet.

Like most 15 and 16 year olds, so many of my students have dreams and aspirations of creating something special that shares their experience navigating through their unique lives.

The challenge is that not a lot of teenagers know how to create quality art, or more specifically are afraid to be bad at the art they create.

It is my job to help them find their digital voice, and help them build their confidence, so that they can communicate beyond the walls of our school.

My Project

While my class covers the basics of multimedia, I still want to provide student choice and exploration that dives deeper into areas of multimedia that they are passionate about. For the Indie Project, I am giving my students every Friday of the semester to pursue a form of digital art that inspires them to improve and grow as an artist.

This semester I have so many students that are passionate about music and, since our schools music program was cancelled a few years ago, the Indie Project provides these students an opportunity to explore their interest as a digital musician.

By supporting the purchase of USB keyboards for the Indie Project you are helping bring music back into our school.
