My students need matte board, tape and matte cutting supplies in order to submit their Photographs for Art Exhibits and competitions.
I love the look on my student's face when they see a print of their work. I love to tell them to sign their name on their photo because all good artists sign their work. We need matting supplies in order to exhibit their photos in exhibitions and competitions.
Our school is a low performing high school located in Philadelphia.
Most of my students live at or below the poverty level. They are a talented group of students who suffer from low self esteem. My class is designed to show them that they can be successful and in the past they have been. This year however due to budget cuts there is little or no money for the supplies we need to cut mattes and display their work. As a photographer there is nothing better than seeing your work in print and hanging on a wall, this year it has been difficult to provide that for my students. Not having a budget for supplies is really hampering my program.
During the past few years my student have been exhibiting their work not only at school but also in city wide, regional and even national exhibitions. Students have won awards and even cash prizes in all of these shows and exhibitions. Work has been hung throughout the state and even in the congressional office building in Washington DC. A number of my students' photos are even used for raising funds to help the arts program in the city of Philadelphia through an organization none as Fresh Artists. My students though these experiences have learned to be successful and been motivated to take learning and achievement much more seriously.
Please help my class by contributing money for the mattes and matting supplies we so badly need.
The photography program as it is designed in my school allows and encourages even the most poorly performing students to feel good about their work, it encourages creativity and shows them that their ideas are valid and also teaches them to see things from a different point of view. It helps develop a positive attitude towards learning and also helps them appreciate the arts. Please support us.
