Printing Creativity

My students need a 3D printer and filament to help further their journey into art and creativity utilizing technology.

My Students

The visual arts are a place of discovery and learning. The goal of my classes is to engage the students in the creative process and let them know of the much larger art world outside our doors. To enter galleries and know how and why a piece of work was created. We live in an artistic world; my job is to help the students better interpret that.

My students come from a wide variety of diversified backgrounds and live in Oklahoma City.

Although I might sound biased, we truly have some of the greatest kids around. They are excited to learn new techniques and not afraid to voice their opinions on life. My students take great pride in both our school and their community.

My Project

My Project

Utilizing technology is of utmost importance in today's technological world.

Within the arts 3D printers are becoming more and more commonplace. Printing has become the norm for fabrication of part in sculpture.It is important for students to feel comfortable with this technology. Their continuing efforts help them not only learn special aspects of sculpture but computer graphics as well. Their programs are visualized and then created in a 3D format.

My hope is for my students to continue their evolution in this ever technological world. What we need is an actual 3D printer and filament. With our current budget crises there is no possibility of being able to fund a item like this on our own.

This project will enable my students to use a 3D printer in the classroom setting. My students are inner city children who might never have the possibility of getting a chance like this. It is only through donations that we can afford to offer this opportunity.
