Today is the last day of school until September. I've ordered A LOT of books to go over, as I want to try to really change my program for the new semester. I usually add a project or two per year, but after 5+ years of similar assignments, I'm ready for some real changes. Stay tuned :)
The last assignment I will leave you with is a creative photography assignment. My background is photography, but the work that I exhibit is what I would call "photographic sculpture". For this assignment, the students were asked to tell an open ended photographic story based on their portfolio theme. In addition, they were asked to find a creative way to manipulate their photos as well- either digitally through Photoshop, or manually through the display and presentation (this could include things such as photographic sculptures). I was really happy with many of the results, and I think that next year I will probably dedicate more time to this type of assignment.
I hope you all have a very safe and happy summer! Thanks for all of your support and comments, I look forward to posting more amazing art in the fall!

Did you notice the post I added last month with the grade 11 macro photography? Here are the pastel drawings that came as a result of those photos. I wish I had photographed the work of the entire classes, because they were beautifully drawn. Enjoy :)

Here are some sculptures that the grade 9-10 class created, based on a box that they would personalize. Afterwards, they were asked to paint it using a technique of their choice (ex. stipple, smooth blending, etc). Here are the results from both of my afternoon classes.
