Essay by Kevin Olson @ Tara Elementary - Donations that are raised from this event will help our art program at Tara Elementary get needed technology for digital art implementation in our art program. With increasing use of digital artforms in the world today, our program uses digital art integration at a very young age to help prepare our students for potential career paths in the arts that will require the use of digital media. We see technology as a tool for increasing student creativity and artistic expression while teaching artistic fundamentals in traditional media. Although we strongly believe in using traditional mediums to teach artistic principles, we also see the need to prepare students in the use of digital mediums that are used in careers including graphic design, interior design, and architecture to name a few. We will be using these funds to help acquire iPads and apple pencils that we will provide students an introduction in the use of digital art programs such as Procreate and Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Thank you for your donations, they are greatly appreciated by all of the students at Tara that will benefit for years to come.
