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:
