Sometimes we don’t give time to qualities that we are truly thankful for. What is the best part of you? This question was put to the students yesterday and today. We were asked to photograph the best part of ourselves in an artist way. We worked in pairs to do this. It is a bit hard to take a picture of your own arms! We were reminded to keep the elements of Art (form, texture, value, space, colour and space and line) in mind when taking their photographs. Look at the texture of the background surfaces, the value (light to dark tones) and shapes shown in the photographs. We accompanied the photographs with an expressive piece of prose describing the best part of ourselves.
Here is just a snippet.
