iPads in Art.....

   Mrs. Albright, our art teacher at the high school, teaches a photography class.  She submitted this to me so I thought I would share:

"One of the benchmarks of the Artistic Process: Perform or Present art standard is to “present, exhibit, publish or demonstrate collections of artworks for different audiences  and occasions."  Photography and Design students complete the “Photojournalist Assessment” on a weekly basis to meet that benchmark.  They assume the role of a photojournalist and shoot photos in the school and community that might be of interest to the newspaper, Record Review, audience.  They also write a caption for the photo, then I submit it to the Record Review.  The editor makes the choice of whether or not to publish the photos.  The resolution of iPad photos is not very high, but it is sufficient for newspaper publication."

   Many of these that Mrs. Albright's students have submitted have indeed been published in our local newspaper.  It has been fun to read them and know that they did their work on the iPads.  Here are a few sample of photos that were taken by students in her class:

   Here is an example of what it looks like when published in our Record Review.  What a great school/community connection for Mrs. Albright's class! 
     LOVE the snow picture above - this was actually taken right outside Mrs. Albright's door - she has the BEST view in our building and the most BEAUTIFUL lighting:)!  Wish that it was THAT nice outside today, too:)!

Happy Weekend,
