Egypt & Altered Photography
Fifth grade students recently concluded their study of Egyptian art with a lesson in altered photography. Each student staged a unique narrative using digital cameras and their Egyptian collar projects.
Students collaborated to photograph one another using a digital camera and a blank wall. Some students chose to include classmates as participants in their narrative scenes.
Once the photos were printed, students altered their photographs with colored pencils to bring their scenes to life. Many depict stories of friendship, battle and sport.
Below is a display of the altered photographs and collars:
Below are examples of the altered photographs:

Fifth grade students continue to study Ancient Egypt in art class. Recently students created collars inspired by paintings inside the Egyptian pyramids.
Each student painted a large oval using metallic gold or copper paint on paper. Once the paint had dried, students were encouraged to create a unique radial design with markers. Some students incorporated Egyptian hieroglyphics while others used geometric shapes and lines.
Students then cut out the large ovals, creating a slit on one side so the piece will be wearable. .
Below are examples of the students' work in progress.
Students will wear these Egyptian collars for our next assignment using digital cameras to create an altered photograph. Students will take turns as photographer and subject to create visual narratives using the Egyptian frontalism style.
Below are examples of the students' completed artworks.
