Ms. Lawson from Albuquerque NM is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Original Screenprints by Amazing Kids

My students need materials for screenprinting. The biggest expense is the fabric and ink for them to be able to wear their designs. Students are unable to afford shirts to print their designs and wear.

My Students

My students come from all over the Albuquerque metro area. We are a travel school (meaning we do not have school buses) and our students choose to come to our small school to be embraced by technology and other core courses that are beyond the standard realm of education that traditional public schools can offer.

At my school, we champion low-achievers into bridging the achievement gap and finding passion and pride in their learning.

The students thrive on hands-on activities and learning. These projects meet the various needs of the population.

My Project

My students in graphic arts have become interested in the ancient technique of silk screen-printing. We use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to create unique, one-of-a-kind designs, and then students get to actually be hands-on with developing the print, building the screen and printing their design onto fabric.

Screen-printing is a labor intensive project, but one that helps them develop real-world skills and encourage their future career goals.

Fabric (shirts) and ink are a difficult expense for several students and makes up the bulk of resources requested. By providing these, students can proudly display their hard work. By using our natural resources such as the New Mexico sun, we are able to expose our prints in a safe environment. Students use the skills they acquire in this activity to further their critical thinking in art, the use of art, and how they can enter the economy as a print artist.
