I am proposing equipment needed to support a printmaking course for one of my art electives I offer to my middle school art students. As a brand new Brooklyn public middle school that opened up in the beginning of the 2003-2004 school year one of my school's new emphasis is to build our art programs (which includes dance, drama, music, art, and technology) to become one of the finest in our city. All students in our middle school take five periods of art classes per week and focus on one arts area as a major for their entire time in our school. One of the more challenging aspects of developing various successful programs in a new school is finding the money needed to support each curriculum. The proposal I am funding will service 200 children I teach each year. In addition to a printing press, supplies needed to fund this proposed course include materials needed to introduce students to silkscreen, multiple plate linoleum, collography, and lithography printmaking. With these materials and supplies, students will gain visual literacy through a variety of artistic experiences, to help them understand, interpret, and appreciate the visual world and the interior world of their own imagination.
