IPads in the Art Room

My students need iPads to help them learn about creative design, photography, and coding.

My Students

My classroom is a place where students are able to explore their world and themselves artistically. As twenty-first century learners, I think it is imperative that they are introduced to as many different artistic mediums as possible, enabling them to better communicate their message to the world.

The 2015-2016 school year will be the first year that my school is open.

Starting the school year with a projected 1,200 students (all of whom I will teach), a high ESOL population, and as a Title I school, I have my work cut out for me. Many of my students are coming from disadvantaged backgrounds and as their art teacher I think it is my job to teach them how to express themselves artistically so they can share their unique stories with the world.

My Project

In addition to teaching my students drawing, painting, printmaking, and ceramics, I would love to be able to teach them about photography, filmmaking, graphic design, web design, and animation. Coming from a graphic design background myself, with ipads I will be able to teach my students how to use modern technology expressively in order to effectively communicate a message.

Getting iPads for my classroom would absolutely enable me to teach my students valuable skills for a technology-driven world.

By donating to this project, you will be helping me to introduce my students to a completely different way of communicating through digital expression.
