This is one of my student's favorite photography projects!
Students explore the meaning of symbolism through the camera lens and can't wait to view each other's photos, seeing what's important to each of them!
This assignment helps to represent and develop a better sense of self as students use inanimate objects to express their individuality and creativity.
Art Show Ideas:
Print exquisite and timeless black and white photographs of this assignment for the hallways of your school and/or for your upcoming art show. Take it to the next level, and have your students create a written response to their piece which describes the symbols contained within.
