Theme: Farm to Fork
Somersworth Residency started off with a teachers workshop; student participants learned more about their cameras made books out of their photographs, learned a bit about the history of photograph and made cloth cyanotpyes that they then transformed into a quilt and pillows.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.
