Light Boxes and Drawing Station
My students need drawing materials and studio equipment to allow us to soar as we explore patterns and rhythm. It's more fun to invent shapes on a light box.
Do you remember how much fun it was to use a light box? Perhaps you started with "Light Brite"? Patterns and rhythm are more exciting to create on a light box. With light boxes, we will improve our stamina for invention, concentration and the complexity of our Art making.
My K-8 school is located in an extremely impoverished multiracial urban neighborhood in Connecticut.
Our particular school is ranked at the bottom of district performance. Funding for interesting materials is tough. I have some talented artists that I would love to take to the next level.
"Real" studio equipment makes the environment more professional and attractive. My students have difficulty believing in themselves when faced with the task of personal expression. Having cool art tools helps them forget about these insecurities and engage with the novelty of the materials. We will create an original design and then explore what happens when we copy and repeat the design using the light box. Having the lines to follow will boost creative confidence.
My students need a scaffold to help them have the courage to create.
They do not believe that they can draw or design. A light box will provide this comfort. Even though funds are tight at home and at school, these kids matter too. A well stocked, exciting Art room is going to inspire my kids to reach higher and work harder to explore their creative powers. They deserve it!
