With the amazing array and diversity of art, it cannot be defined in simple terms. However, our students can tell you what it is when given the chance. I'd like to give them more breath and depth when they talk about art though this project.
Our school is located in a densely populated part of Southern California, where a great mixture of ethnicities come together.
Most of the students at our school are children of immigrant families, therefore English learners. As a Title I School, all of our students receive free/reduced lunches, and experience limited resources at home and in their neighborhoods. But school should not be one of them.
This computer will allow our students to research various types of art, art of different cultures, search for similarities and differences from one region to another, or one time frame to another. They will also explore how some forms of "art" are more recognizable in our everyday surroundings, while some are mostly found in museums. Students will be able to search for the boundless and limitless forms of art on the Internet and draw their own conclusions of which they appreciate more.
Art is universal.
Art is one language. In the midst of the diversity we experience in the classroom, it's amazing how a few things truly unite and bring everyone together. And isn't it great that it can be in a form of learning, through appreciation of different types of art? This is what you will be contributing to. Thanks.
