01.05.08 – Featured Student

Posted by rws on January 5, 2008

Starting a New Thing — A request was made to show some student work and I think this is a really really fun idea. So on Saturdays I’m going to not only post an image of my own but also feature some work from current and past students. I’m really very excited about this!


By Melissa Lee

Note: Melissa took this for Assignment 5 – the assignment most of my students hate but which I love. It pushes them. One of the more fun images I ask them to create is that of a silhouette. I just love this one. It reminds me of Mark Twain and Huckleberry Finn.
Note2: Melissa says that it reminds her of Winnie the Pooh. So I guess we’re all on track with the literary allusions.
Note3: Want to see more of Melissa’s Work?

    I love this idea!! I’m so glad you are doing this. It also gives your blog stalkers more fodder to go look at! I love all the inspiration I can find.

    This shot is super. The kids look perfectly spaced for a great silhouette. Just beautiful.
