Printing Galore

My students need a color printer, photo paper, and ink cartridges to be able to print their art.

My Students

Third grade art students are making "worry dolls" based on actual dolls that are made in Guatemala for the purpose of transferring worries form their mind to the doll. It worked! Students told me that they felt better about taking exams because the doll had absorbed their worries.

I teach at a Title One school.

The students come from a low socioeconomic background and do not have many opportunities to learn about art at home. Most of the students are not English speakers and really need visuals to understand my lessons. They are eager to have art experience as a change from classroom work. My current equipment, computer and projector, do not work well and are unreliable. A color printer will make the elements of art, particularly color and texture, more real and exciting so that the essence of the project is captured and absorbed by the students.

My Project

A color printer will allow me to print off visuals so that my students can see what I am trying to teach. When I am teaching about famous paintings I can actually have the art printed and in their hands. This will bring the artwork to life for the students. When we are making "worry dolls", I can print pictures of actual dolls so students can see the textural elements of their construction as well as the beautiful colors used by the people of Guatemala. I am also requesting photo paper and ink cartridges.

A printer in my class will not only make art and artists more real for the students, it will also help them have an appreciation of the culture.

They will be able to see the art work in the actuality.
