My Students

Our students are a full spectrum with a diverse campus in race, culture, socioeconomic status and interests. Our campus serves approximately 635 students, grades 7th thru 8th and between the ages of 12 to 14. Ethnically our students are approximately 87% minorities with 45% being Latin American, 26% African American, and 13% Asian and Pacific Islander. 25% of our students are currently an English Language Learner.

With our array of students and individuality they bring to the table we need a class that celebrates the diversity and creative side of our students.

My Project

Our art club has gone off without a hitch! We are a large group with eager learners but the issue is that when demos are being presented or questions are being asked that sway away for the lesson planning it is very hard to convey in real time what the students need to see and understand. We are limited without supplies to a letter-sized paper that has to be held up after the demo and during only a few get to see what is happening live. If I can set up a document camera to an existing projector, I can solve this issue.

Please help our artists see more to grow their skills with a live demonstration camera!

This will save valuable time and trees to show the steps to create artwork on their own!
