3/16 and 3/23: Visual Arts Visiting Artist: Christina Simons
Photographer Christina Simons joined the Visiting Artist/Visual Arts class for some very fun shadow puppet construction and filming! The students created incredible shadow puppets out of construction paper, bubble wrap, colored cellophane, Christmas lights and more. Christina provided a fantastic set up with an overhead projector and screen for the kids to experiment with their puppets as well as some fancy tricks with the overhead projector (including a tub of water, dye, and oil).
Watch the whole film on our YouTube channel complete with some fun shenanigans at the end and a guest appearance by Christina's cat!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7E3CzX3s2A
Here are some stills from their beautiful film:
