Can you donate to help purchase iPads for our Bullpup Artists?

THANK YOU! THIS PROJECT IS FULLY FUNDED!

Ms. Strand, Thurgood Marshall’s Visual Art teacher, has a Donors Choose fundraiser to purchase 4 iPads for use in our school’s art studio. If you are able, please consider making a donation to support media arts at Thurgood Marshall. 

Before the pandemic, students were very motivated by our yearly “Stop Motion Animation” unit in their Visual Art class. It is a valuable opportunity for students to create visual stories with the magic of animation, develop critical thinking and math skills as students problem solve to plan and create their videos. Unfortunately, the current iPads at our school are not always accessible for art, and many need replacing.
