My students need a video projector to view images of art practices through history and around the world.
My students come to art to be inspired and express their creativity. We develop projects influenced by great artists throughout history and around the world, cultivating their uniquely personal style along the way. If we had a video projector for the art room, we could learn so much more!
My 500 Kindergarten through 5th grade students range in age from 5-11 years old.
They are playful, energetic, and curious, eager to work with their hands and try something new to make wonderful art. Our elementary school is in an urban area of the city, often associated with economic difficulties. Many of our students have experienced serious hardships, but come to school to grow stronger from the community the administration and teachers strive to create. We love our kids, even when they challenge our patience. We help them develop intellectually, socially, and emotionally, and we see our role as teachers as an honor and a privilege.
Our school is always seeking opportunities to provide our students with the best chance for success in life. Recently, the students all received laptop computer tablets in an effort to increase technological literacy and enhance learning across the curriculum in all areas of study. Various applications, websites, and online resources for art are available to them now for the first time, and I very much wish to use these tools to broaden their knowledge of the visual arts. With a video projector for our classroom, I would be able to provide detailed profiles of artists' biographies, techniques, concepts, and methods of art making. Currently, I have no way to show examples of other artists' works, no way to tell the story of how visual art concepts influence their world in the realms of design, architecture, and contemporary culture.
A projector would greatly assist our students' efforts to better understand the way that artists throughout history and around the world have shaped the way our world looks and how culture is created.
By showing them what other artists invented and produced, they will better comprehend that they have the power to invent and create their own works of art, solve problems creatively, and think critically about how the world around them works.Read More
