my daughter is in the 3rd grade and is in the midst of a photo essay
assignment. she was given full instruction about telling a story with
photographs, how to lay out story, etc and was sent to work.
she can take the photographs at home but may not do any of the layout
work at home. they want to be sure that the entire project comes from
the student (not that i would butt in!)
the project will be juried and the top 2 will be hung in the center for
creative photography at the university of arizona.
being a photographer myself (and an art ed masters student) i am very
curious to see how it all turns out.
