Mrs. Mroz from Brooklyn NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Visual Art Class in Need of Visuals!

My students need an opaque art projector.

How can you learn about art without ever seeing what art looks like? I teach in a middle school, in a high-poverty area. Students are unable to bring in their own supplies, and so our entire art budget goes to ensuring that we have enough basic supplies for our students, and even that is not always enough.

Although all the art teachers are incredibly dedicated, and the students interested in art, it is virtually impossible to expose the students to the art world. My students are under the false impression that if you can't draw well, you will never be an artist. I have tried to show them different examples of artists, painters, sculptors, ceramists. However, the majority of my examples are from a small collection of books and postcards.

An opaque projector is unique because not only will it project images from books, or postcards, it can also project student-made work, and small sculptures. This type of projector is very versatile, and requires no other technology; which is good because our technology in this school is limited. My students will all be able to view the same work, at the same time; and while we are discussing the piece as a class, they will be able to view it. This will allow the students a further exposure to art, both historically and contemporary. I would like all my students to have an appreciation for art, and an understanding of why art should be valued.

Your help will ensure that my students are fully exposed to the art world. You will make it possible for my students to see that not everyone has to be a great draftsman to be an amazing artist.
