Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach a group of very creative and motivated talented visual art students in rural Louisiana. We usually work from magazine photos, but I would love for them to have the opportunity to create truly original works of art by working from photos they have taken themselves. I am "wishing" for a digital camera so that our class can take interesting photos to use when creating drawings and paintings. I plan to have students work in small groups to take photos of things they see every day. Students will use cropping and consider the composition and the elements of art to make the photos more interesting. Students would then create original paintings working from the photos they have taken. This project could be done every year with new groups of students! A digital camera would also make it possible to keep a digital portfolio for each student throughout the year. A digital portfolio would allow students to take their original work home and still maintain a record of their work and progress at school. Who knows where this type of experience in school could lead.... You may see my students work in the Louvre one day!
