I teach Art in a large inner-city high school that is the result of the merger of three rival schools due to financial consolidation. Our students are in need of ways to create diverse Art that expresses their feelings and contributes to the community in which they live. We have amazingly talented students who flourish when given the inspiration, resources and opportunity to let their creativity shine.
I love the vitality and energy my students bring to my class, it’s contagious!
Students will be able to use the Chromebooks to look up artists, projects, techniques and ideas for inspiration for their artwork. This will bring a resource into the class that doesn’t currently exist. If a student shows an interest in a specific artist or style, I have to share my computer that has confidential grading information on it with them. Not an ideal way to teach. Our students deserve the resources to make them competitive if they go on to pursue a post-secondary education.
Help us foster creativity based on access to artists world wide.
