Photoshop+Computers= Artistic Explosion Part II

The cost of a computer monitor from Office Depot is $578, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I have students with so much creativity waiting to be activated by providing the opportunities to try new things! I teach Photography, Art, and Journalism. This summer I spent a week exploring new technology for movie making and interactive uses of computers. I want to bring this technology to my classroom. This grant is Part II of a computer package to make and view movies, plus manipulate photo graphics. Putting a computer that is powerful enough to handle Photoshop software into my classroom for my Art and Photography students is critical. I have several students who are making their own animated videos and manipulating their photography, but they can't do it in the Art classroom. This part of the grant is for a high definition monitor to view enhanced graphics. It will complete the computer package. My research shows this monitor will be adequate for about five years of developing technology and the computer I have chosen will also be sufficient for the long haul. I already have the Photoshop Creative Suites software sitting on a shelf waiting to be loaded to a computer. It's killing me not be able to use it! This area of artistic endeavor is so exciting and the kids are dying to do more. If I can provide this opportunity I can guarantee my kids will learn great things. I have a few students working on video projects this year at home, but others are prohibited because they do not have computer access at home. Shooting the still photography and editing through the Movie Maker software needs to be a classroom activity.
