🌍 Earth Day at Kehillah – Student Art Contributions and More
Student Art Contributions:
The use of typography can be lyrical in a sense that the font, the spacing, and the way flow can be hand designed much like a throwback to the letterpress days. The students in Digital Design class honed their skills, manipulating and placing the words, letters, songs, or speeches to create beautiful illustrations advocating for the environment or celebrating those who have influenced the world.
My goal in teaching Digital Art is to emphasize the power of art and how artists can use their tools to change the world. – Ms. Chouhan
The Digital Photography students chose to create projects that combined their photographs with recycled materials emphasizing how we are impacting the environment that we live in. The projects took on a life of their own as some students created websites, timelapse videos, paintings, and more.
Ms. Idleman‘s Alternative Media and Advanced Art classes produced some beautiful embroidery projects displaying different aspects of natures beauty:
Dr. Bennett’s Fireside Chat covered the history of Earth Day, we reflected on what inspired this annual celebration while enjoying his doodles and the brevity he brings to all of his broadcasts.
Also, links to music playlists by Mr. Stewart and poetry readings were sent to all teachers and students for the mind and soul.
