Artist in Residence

Theme: Farm to Fork 


 
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

Bakie School Residency

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...
