This project was over the course of several weeks and the whole school was involved.
"I feel the students comments say it all"
-Bonnie DuBois the school art teacher
· I liked the fact that you could choose the way you wanted your picture to come out
· You could take as many pictures as you liked
· You could choose your theme, story line for your pictures
· We learned about the different settings of the camera
· We were able to be as creative as we wanted with our photos
· I liked watching the cyanotypes develop into a picture
· I loved learning how to sew the cyanotypes into a pillow
· I loved learning about and taking pictures. I am still doing it at home
Having fun shooting in the garden.
Middle School student making cyanotypes in the theme of Farm to Fork.
During the school year 2015-2016 I will be the Artist-in-Residence at the Bakie School in Kingston, New Hampshire. The first part of our project is a photography based project with 3rd, 4th and 5th graders titled: Community of Caring. Our cameras are ipads and each student has had their own ipad to make pictures around the school focused on caring. They made a "shot list" and learned about composition and the decisive moment. Here they are at work. Stay tuned for more...
