Caldwell Digital Arts Lab - students standing holding their artwork

Group M7 Design representatives, joined Caldwell Arts Academy to dedicate the school’s new Digital Arts Lab. The lab is part of a partnership formed between the school and Group M7 Design last August to enrich its digital arts curriculum.

“Group M7 Design is proud to be a corporate sponsor of Caldwell Arts Academy,” Group M7 Design Founder and Senior Partner Michael Mahfood said. “The value of a digital arts and graphic design program for K-8 students will prove to be an immeasurable attribute to this community. We look forward to working with the students at Caldwell to help mold the future of Tyler, Texas.

The digital arts program at Caldwell has become one of the school’s most important curriculums by connecting technology and the arts to create a robust platform for student expression.

The first part of the partnership included $60,000 to furnish the lab with 24 virtual desktops, 24 drawing tablets, and the school’s own HPE server to store all of the creative digital pieces students produce each year. The partnership will also give Caldwell students opportunities to participate in master classes with designers and developers from Group M7 Design to create innovative projects.

“We are honored to dedicate our amazing Digital Arts Lab with Group M7 Design,” Caldwell Principal Bobby Markle, said. “Our partnership with Group M7 Design helps our innovative curriculum excel and create a unique arts learning environment here in East Texas.”
