Last week, the Dragons took part in the ECC Photo Collaborative Art Show here at SIS. The project started with ECC students studying how to take a good photo. Each child practiced taking photos and eventually chose their favorite shot. We then asked buddy classes both near and far to collaborate with us. Our photographs were sent to other children who were invited to create an artistic response. Some created art pieces and some created writing pieces, all based on our original photos.
The process of creating, collaborating, assembling the show and reflecting on our pieces has provided some wonderful learning opportunities. The children were excited and proud as they shared the work with friends and family at the art show.
The Dragons would like to send a big thank you to their buddies who contributed interpretations of our photos. Ms. Van Zandt and our 1A reading buddies at SIS, who made a piece of art. Ms. Islen Price Craig and 4C children at the International School in Tianjin, who wrote poems. Ms. Alejandra Milano and JKB children at the International School in Dongguan, who also made a piece of art. We feel so lucky to have this collection of amazing creative work.
