Mr. Taylor from Savannah GA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Look Mom, My Colors Match

My students need a Spyder4ELITE to calibrate their monitors so what they see on the screen is what the image will look like when its printed.

My Students

Have you ever created a design or edited a photography and when it was completed you printed it? Did what you see on your monitor match up with the coloring on your printer? Probably not, and this happens all the time to my students because the monitor is calibrated differently than the printer.

The students I teach attend a dedicated visual and performing arts high school in Georgia where they are required to select a major and continue on that path, whether it is in Visual Arts, Communication Arts, Dance, Theater, or Music for the duration of their high school career.

Along with the challenging arts classes, students are taking advanced academic coursework as well as being involved in a number of extracurricular activities. These students are highly motivated and extremely talented and strive to be the best that they can be.

My Project

I teach both photography and graphic design. With both of these disciplines, the final look of the printed work is a critical factor in the vision of the artist. My students get frustrated all the time because what they see on the monitor is not what it looks like when the print is made. With the use of the Spyder4Elite my students will be able to calibrate their monitors so when they are working on projects, what they see on the screen will match what prints out on the printer.

Supporting this project will not only allow students to achieve the photographic and graphic design print result that they are looking for, it will also reduce the number of prints needed to produce the quality of work that they expect therefor saving paper.
