Digital Collage

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fifth grade students have been exploring collage through the medium of digital photography.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students began with taking self portraits in black and white on a neutral background.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students photographed their partners in sections, focusing on parts of the face instead of creating a whole portrait.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The next step was to look at all of the images they had to work with on their collage.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

After viewing the work of artist David Hockney and others who created collages from digital portraits, the students set to work on their own creations.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Everyone had different ideas on how to process their collage.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Most students had fun with this open-ended collage project.

The final step was to glue down their images onto poster board.  The process was much like creating a puzzle of themselves.

Here are several examples of the students’ work which are now on display.

Photo-collages

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fifth grade students have been exploring creating a collage out of their photographs.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fifth graders had many options to choose from as they worked to create a collage from many layers of one image.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Photographs were printed in several solid colors and students cut them up and put the pictures together to create one new image.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Some students added color to their images to add another dimension to their project.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This was a great project to stimulate the students’ creativity and to open their horizons to new ways of thinking about images.

Second Critique

Standard

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fifth grade students participated in a second critique session, this time from their winter photography session.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students have been using the four-step process of critiquing their photography.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students  learn to:  describe – tell exactly what they see;  analyze – use the elements/principles to reflect upon the art form; interpret – ask what the image is trying to say; and evaluate – determine how successful or important the photograph is.

The fifth graders enjoyed participating in this hands-on method of photographic critiquing.
