Sophia Grade 10: Excellent critique of inspirational photographer

Aj. Liz shared Sophia’s thoughtful;, informed and well presented art investigation of a piece by David LaChapelle. You can see Sophia’s presentation HERE

Not only is it excellent to see such confident critical thinking from a Grade 10 student ( well done Sophia!) it is also lovely to be able to see Aj.Liz’s immediate formative feedback. This is a great example of how Prem teachers are using Remote Learning to deliver high quality student centered education.

Aj. Liz says “This term, one of the Grade 9 & 10 visual arts classes have been learning about photographic techniques. First we created booklets that explored the visual elements through our own photographic works then we illustrated the IB learner profile and made photojournalist responses to remote learning. After this we applied our understanding of these technical skills to the work of a range of inspirational photographers. Students were then given the opportunity to present their artist studies to the rest of the class in an online session, student’s the received formative feedback verbally and written commentary from their peers. Here is an excellent example from Sophia, who had great fun doing it and created an insightful analysis of the work of David LaChapelle. A key question we were exploring was how an artist is influenced by their environment and wether art has the power to create change.”
