Students will choose 2 photographs of their own with a specific theme dealing with opposites (as laid out in the lesson plan), to weave together into one image. This is a great lesson to teach about conceptual themes in art and how these ideas can influence artmaking. Students will also gain experience in deconstructing their photographs into other other art forms and to look at their photos in a non-traditional way.
