Eighth Graders Experiment with Digital Photography

Aron Back
This year in the Upper School we had the exciting opportunity to design a new 8th grade art course. We designed the course to meet the changing world of digital arts with a focus on balancing traditional art techniques with digital to design and create numerous pieces of art.  For their first project, students had the opportunity to explore the combination of digital photography while adding an inorganic object to a natural environment.  Students focused on design elements, composition, color manipulation and photo cropping to make a four photo collage.
